AGME Swiss Musical Powder Compact, Mother of Pearl Mirror Compact
This is a lovely Mother of Pearl Musical Powder Compact made by AGME of Switzerland in the 1950s. It is in good working order. It comes in a lovely presentation bag and would be a great gift.
The lid has squares of Mother of Pearl and the base has a gold tone lined pattern. The lid opens to show a mirror, a inner lid to the powder section and the winding mechanism.
The powder lid opens to show a powder puff and screen.Above the mirror AGME and Made in Switzerland are imprinted. The mirror does give a reflection but has a lined appearance.
The Swiss musical mechanism works well. You just have to manually lift the pin to start it playing once it is wound up. The tune can be heard here https://youtube.com/shorts/x8PNUOSFlJg?feature=share.
Some of the gold tone to the sides and base of the case show some scratches and wear as you'd expect from a vintage item. There is a small patch of deterioration to the gold tone around the mirror.
The Mother of Pearl has been polished and is intact.This really is a lovely musical compact which would make a great gift.
It measures 8.4cm by 6.3cm (3.25 inches by 2.4 inches) with a depth of 2cm (0.75 inches).
