Old Marshall Fields Clock Compact
Wonderful old square compact with the historical Marshall Fields clock on the front in goldtone with a heavily etched design on a brushed silvertone background that has an etched wall and buildings in the background. The face of the clock is brushed silvertone with etched Roman numerals and bright goldtone hands set at 1:55. The inside has a mirror in the lid and inside the bottom is a compartment that opens to hold powder. The lid of the compartment is marked “Wadsworth” in cursive letters and “MADE IN U.S.A.”. There is a square powder puff that is also marked “Wadsworth”. It appears that this was never used. The back of the compact is a brushed goldtone. The mirror has hazing. There are a few tiny black spots on the silvertone top and a scratch on the bottom right corner of the top. The push-button closure of the compact and of the compartment on the inside are in good working condition. Measures 3″ x 3″ x 3/8″. Compact comes in a small felt pouch. A nice piece of history of a Chicago icon.
