Comments

I found this small compact in the dirt It may have been there for a very long time as it was very tarnished. I took it home and cleaned it so I could try and read the writing. I cleaned the tarnish off with WD 40 and it came to a very pretty gold shine. It's Beautiful! I appreciate antiques and was very lucky to have come across this beautiful find.
