Salvador Dali 'Bird-in-Hand' Compact
Own a genuine Dali for less than you might expect.
From a website:
Salvador Dali 'Bird in Hand' Compact
This post WWII compact designed by Dali is an absolutely outstanding item that belongs in every compact collection.
It came in several color/material combinations.
Ours is the partial gilt on silver plate.
He opens by pushing a tab at his tail.
You can then open his powder section or open the base of his tail for pills.
You slide his head out of his body for your lipstick.
Super design work!
His original puff is intact.
The hinge and all closures are tight and work well with firm-sounding clicks.
The mirror is original with no cracks and just a few age specks starting.
There is wear and discoloration to his lacquer as you can see from the photos.
This is normal when the item has been used or handled often.
The gilt is in wonderful condition and his red enamel eyes are intact.
There are no dents or dings, it has never been dropped or abused.
Don't let this delightful fantasy compact pass you by.
He is 4-1/2" long x 2-1/2" wide x 1-1/8" deep.

My "guesstimate" for this item was sorely off the mark. I'd love to have it to send to a friend of mine. Oh well.
