c. later 1920s to 1930s vintage Gladys morpho butterfly wing mirrored powder compact by Coty
A wonderful original Art Deco compact, by Coty as marked to the rear.
Morpho butterfly wing with great luminescence is beneath bold Deco 'Gladys' font in black. I assume they made these in a range of names, or to order? Sure someone could tell me, so feel free if you know!
55mm in diameter, and 11mm high approx
Two very small bumps to metal base which don't really affect overall appearance. Darkening/rubbing to gold finish on metal as seen, and a little to the top but the design is still very presentable
Contains empty powder container, included so as to see size for possible refill. Mirror shows age with a little foxing etc., but again, useable as it is.
