This is a great Art Deco Coty set! It's in a pretty flower decorated stiff brocade clutch with a fold-over flap closure that snaps tightly shut. The satin-lined case holds a bright gold compact in excellent condition and a lipstick with a very Deco styled gold case. It was probably made sometime between the mid-1920s and the early '30s.
The case, when closed, measures 4" by 3" by 1" and is in very good condition, with no frays, marks or tears. The background of the brocade is in ivory and is decorated with bold leaves and flowers in gold, black, orange, teal green and bright red.
The interior of the case is lined with glossy black satin faille marked COTY in gilt. The interior section holds the compact and the lipstick case. The lipstick case is a color called CREAMY RED RIBBON (unused.) The 2 3/4" square compact is in a classic Coty style, with a design on lid and back of narrow vertical grooves. The gold finish is bright and there are no dents or dings. The clasp works well.
Inside, the mirror is bright and clear and has a glowing gold-washed frame. The surround to the powder well is in mirror-bright gold and marked COTY on the lower right corner. The beautiful puff looks barely used, with soft velour on one side and topped with pale peach-gold satin, marked COTY in gold.
A perfect clutch to fit comfortably in the hand and still in very good condition for a set that's at least 60 years old!
