Rho-Jan Vanities Red Metallic Clock Compact
Nice goldtone square compact with a metallic red enamel front with a goldonte clock on the front whose hands move. The inside of the top has a mirror that has some light spotting. The bottom has powder in it under a removable screen or “sifter”, with the original square powder puff that is marked “Rho-Jan Vanity”. The powder puff is in pretty bad shape. It has begun to disintegrate a bit and the top has come loose from the rest of the powder puff. The compact comes with the original paper insert that says “RHO-JAN Compacts – precious beauties of jewelers bronze – each compact is carefully made by skilled craftsmen of the best material obtainable – featured by leading department & drug stores everywhere”. The other side says “For new power puff or sifter write Rho-Jan Vanities, 31 S. Franklin Street, Chicago 6, Illinois, Enclose 20c for No. S900 powder puff, enclose 20c for No. S900 sifter”. The back has a few scuffed marks on it. Measures 3 ½” x 3 ½” x ½”. The closure is in good working condition. This is a nice older Chicago compact.
