Vintage Pygmalion Petit Point Tapestry Compact No1968 Complete
Scarce Vintage Pygmalion Powder Compact
Model No 1968
Gold Tone Case
Petit Point Tapestry Roses & Flowers on a black ground. Engine Turned surround.
Complete with Puff, Filter & Pouch.
Looks to be unused filter/puff very clean.
Minimal wear/scratches to the exterior.
Clasp requires a good puch to open and button has to be puched to close.
Mirror has foxing & freckles.
There is a hidden issue with this delightful compact, I will try to explain.
You may notice little black flecks that appear even after a good blow before closing. If you gentley squeeze the lid it is crunching so i think bewteen the embroidery & mirror is some corrosion possibly to a foam type sheet.
