There is some age related wear, but It appears to have never been used but there must have been a lining at one time. The compact is nice and clean with the original pads intact as well as cakes of powder and rouge still in foil with a little wear to the foil. The purse portion has a nice deco pattern in fall shades of black , sage, silver and orange mesh. The fringe has nice graduated detail and the hand chain still retains the original Whiting Davis hang tag.
Measures about 6.25 inches high 15 cm. Width is 3-4 inches 7.5 - 11 cm. It's 12 inches 30 cm.
In total length including the hand chain. It has no distracting wear or damage. The hand chain and compact could maybe use a light polishing. It displays beautifully as is.
