Not only is it cool on the outside, it has three compartments for make up inside! Rouge (still intact) , pressed powder, and a neat lipstick holder. So of course my mind starts imagining the former owner using this little cutie at a Saturday football game or maybe at the student lounge. I have such an imagination!
Norwich Univ is a military school. It was probably a gift for a young man's mother?
Either way, it is fun to learn more about it.
It is also available right now on ebay... not in my Bella Rosa shop. I'm not abandoning ship, I just decided to see if I can find the right collector for it. Of course, anyone is free to bid on it... here.
I'm off to work on my other finds ... soon to be listed with more history behind each piece!
