Goldtone finger compact, 1920s
Finger or dancing compacts were worn with the loop over one finger, leaving the hands free for dancing. They are much more expensive when fashioned from precious metals with elaborate decoration.
This charming little compact is the perfect flapper accessory without the high cost of an important collector's piece. The inside of the compact has a mirror on one side and a powder puff on the other.
The condition is almost excellent. The compact just shows gentle wear.
The compact has a 1" diameter.
