Unusual Vintage Black Americana POWDER or SOAP BOX

Here is a very interesting item. I am not an expert in this area, so I will describe this item to the best of my ability. I believe that this is a vintage powder box or maybe soap box. It is made of cardboard and has a glossy type ouside. The top of the box depicts what appears to be 2 little black boys and their mother. The first boy has a pair of cymbals and the other little boy appears to be dancing, but is being pulled by the mother. It measures 3 in. in diameter and 1 in. high. There are no markings on the box. The box is in very good condition for its age. It does show some minor wear as to be expected for an item of this age and material.

Tiny Art Nouveau Floral TOOLED LEATHER PURSE

This small, but extraordinary leather purse is in excellent condition for it's age. It holds the original beveled mirror that does show some minor discoloration and a money pouch section. On the back and front of the purse there is a wonderful tooled floral design very reminiscent of the period and style. The corded purse handle appears to be original. The inside  is lined with what I think is a moire fabric. There is a small discoloration on the flap of the change purse part but I am not sure if that is just indicative of the darkening of the leather. I do not think this item was used very much based on it's condition. It measures 3 1/4 in x 3 1/2 in. closed and 6 3/4 opened.. A true work of art in miniature that has survived so well over time.

Rare Figural Enameled XL POCKET WATCH COMPACT

This is a real find....Marked made in Italy Patent 24274. Since it was made in Italy, I am guessing that the patent number is related to Italian numbers...but I am not sure of this. The front of the compact resembles a gorgeous pocket watch with an enameled face, gold hands and a blue stone in the center. It looks so realistic! The glass or plastic casing over the watch face is in excellent condition with no scratches. Open it up and find the original sifter and pink swan's down puff. The mirror shows some slight discoloration. There is minor wear in the form of surface scratching on the edges and on the the back, but nothing that detracts from the unique beauty of this compact. I have not polished it or cleaned it...I leave that for the new owner to do or not.To open, you push down on the top wind stem. This one measures 2 7/8 in. in diameter. Don't miss out on this one, if you collect unusual figural compacts.
