French Houbigant Pearl/Abalone Shell Rouge Powder Duo
Art Deco 1930's Houbigant Duo Compact
Made in France
Unusual Mother of Pearl & Abalone Shell decoration to the lid. I would assume an after-market decoration. 7 Point star on a filigree base.
Platinum colour case with engine turned base.
Contains original powder. I can just image a stylish lady with white porcelian skin and rosy cheeks carrying this. Also comes with puffs.
7.2cm x 4.2cm
Overall condition is good. Tranishing/Wear to case with small fine split to 1 edge & slight lift/nick to another. Shell Lid roughly set so some raised areas.
Clasp good as is the hinge. Mirror good with minor little blemishes.
