A Very Compact Compact, This Mid-Century Volupte "Quint" Brass Carryall is in New and Unused Condition
Let me quote the little slip of tri-folded paper that comes with this compact:
"This is Volupte's very-miniature carryall, holding your all-imprtant five: powder, rouge, liprouge, comb, mirror. This baby was born for small purses, pockets, sports-wear, evening bags or even "his" pocket at the dance."
Well, there ya have it. No need for this middle-aged construction worker to speculate over the point of this little bitty compact any further. What I will tell you is that it is unused, with a plastic film covering the liprouge and a tiny piece of paper over the rouge. There is no powder under the powder puff though, and there doesn't appear that there ever was. this compact measures 4 1/8" long, 1 5/8" wide and 1/2" thick and it has a lacquer coating
