Unbelievable 1950s 3-piece petit point cosmetic set! This gorgeous set includes a compact, lucite comb, and stainless steel nail file. There is a small piece of paper included with the set that states that it took 214 days for a skilled needleworker to embroider the petit point used on this item - Styled by Schildkraut, approximate number of stitches 8,171.

I find it amazing that this set was never been used. All the pieces have a gold/brass-colored backing. The compact opens to a mirror with the original sticker label from Schildkraut stating, "Genuine Handmade Petitpoint - 1,850 stitches to the square inch". The bottom portion of the compact has a metal covering that opens to an unused powder pad and a recessed area where the powdered makeup is stored. The lucite comb pulls out of the petit point case which also has a mirror on the backside. The nail file folds out of its case and the actual file is marked, "Stainless - Made in USA".

Measurements:
Compact 2 3/4" wide by 2 3/4" deep by 1/4" high
File 3" long when closed and 5 1/2" long when open
Comb 4 1/2" long by 1 1/2" wide

The entire set is in excellent vintage condition. There are some minor superficial scratches noted on the metal which are probably from storage. Please see provided photos for full details. Free shipping!!!
