WWII Era U.S. Army Compact


This square compact is a wonderful WWII collectible. The front has the Army insignia eagle on the front and says "U.S. Army" above it. There is red, white, and blue enamel which has worn off quite a bit on the front. The back is a swirled line pattern. The inside is chocked full of different types of makeup. A mirrored piece of metal flips out to see your reflection in it. A small rectangle area which I believe is black mascara that has powder over it is at the top right next to a mascara/eyebrow brush. Below that, which isn’t pictured very well, is a small hinged compartment marked "Lip Cream" and "Eye Shadow". It lifts open to reveal bright red lip cream and bright blue eye shadow cream. Below that is an empty slot where I believe a pencil used to be. Finally, the bottom part of the lower part of the compact has a rectangle of powdered rouge. Below that is another hinged compartment that has the residue of powder that it used to hold still in it. The metal appears to be brass. Considering its age, it is in very good condition. Lid closes tight and is in good working condition. All hinges are in good working condition also. Measures 2 1/8" square and sits 7/16" high. Packed full of lots of makeup for such a tiny compact.
