Description

A beautiful old compact by Woodworth with the scent Karess.  It has an Art Deco design on the top and a plain design on the bottom. I think a bit of blue enamel in the greek key design around the edge. The company began in the mid 1800's selling perfumes, cosmetics, and toilitries.  The scent Karess came out in 1917.  There are two patent dates in the base underneath, 1916 and 1917.

This compact is in very good condition, some light wear, the mirror has slid a little to the left, where it is even on the right side with the metal holding it in.  It's only noticeable if you are really looking. This compact measures approx. 2 inches across.
