I have an almost identical one attached to a bow pin, in its box. It is by Mary Chess.

Hi !
Leonore is right, I have this in my database too.
This one is made by Mary Chess - filled up with White Lilac fragrance. I think it was made for other fragrances too ( Tapestry, Strategy and maybe more )

Greetings !

I'm thinking of selling the mary chess compact that you were able to help me identify, thanks so much! Could you suggest the average price range that would be reasonable for this kind of compact? (no boxes and all perfume is gone, except the scent.) [Wink]

Hi Lauderlover !
I think it could be 15-20 $. With box and perfume
it could be 30-40 $.

Hi Michaela,

I have a friend who is interested in collecting Evans Compacts.

If you or anyone on the site knows anything about them (I have seen some at an antiques fair in London) would you please let me know.

Are there special ones to look out for or is there a site she can go into?

Over to the experts!!

Hi Jacky !
I'm not an expert for powder compacts and never heart of Evans before.
I'm just the lucky owner of the Starry Nights and America the Beautiful with rhinestones [Puzzled] because they are lovely - and I don't want more - because I have no places for vitrines [Big Grin] . Maybe Ann and Ken are knowing more about this compacts !

Best wishes !

Michaela

Hi Jacky,

Which Evans powder compacts does she want to collect???
Can you narrow it down a little?

Some good research sources would be
any of Roselyn Gerson's powder compact books.
Evans was one of the biggest manufacturers of ladies vanities items.
