This vintage Evans compact is baby blue in color with a silver mesh lower area. Inside is a mirror in extremely good condition, no age spotting that you'd normally see with mirrors this old. There is also the "powder puff". The only powder remaining is residue.
The top is blue enamel with a pair of lovebirds sitting on a tree branch. There are some spots visible. I don't know if the 'spots" are rust or something else but I was able to pop a couple of them off with my nail. I don't want to get too involved with that because I don't want to take a chance of damaging it. Maybe something like 'Goof-Off" or one of the other cleaning products would work, but I don't have any available so will leave that to the next owner.
The base is a flexible silver mesh material. There are no missing pieces and it is still securely attached to the top.
It measures 2 inches across the top and is 1/2 inch tall. The hinge and closure work perfectly. The top and base edge has some patina that I will leave for the buyer to see.
The Evans hallmark would be above the latch, but it is rubbed in the area where it is located. Researching this, I did find one other (with an asking price of just under one hundred dollars) that clearly shows the hallmark in the exact place where this one is rubbed. I'm asking much less for mine because of the spots on the top and because I'm leaving them for the next owner to either remove or leave them as is.
