This lovely, one of a kind, Melissa powder compact has a lid and base of gold tone metal, with a fine cross hatch design. The lid has a black bow motif, possibly jet or early plastic, with a white cameo in the centre. This appears to have been added at a later date, as it seems to be older than the compact, and may have originally been a brooch. "Melissa, made in England", is engraved below the mirror. The striped inner lid opens to reveal the powder well with its unused sifter.
🔸This vintage Melissa powder compact is in good used vintage condition.
🔸The cameo decoration is in very good condition, with a small chip to the bottom edge. I believe that this is a later addition.
🔸The catches and hinges work well.
🔸The mirror gives a good reflection, with a tiny chip to one edge.
🔹The gold tone has some scuffs and marks. Please see the photos.
🔹I suspect that the cameo decoration is not original to this compact, and has been added at a later date to make a plain compact more interesting. It is, however a lovely addition. Traces of glue can be seen around the edge. Please see the photos.

Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewellery, for example), if you contact me directly.
Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.
Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
How to Contact Me

Dayna Greenwood, 108 Abingdon Road, Maidstone, Kent, ME16 9EH, United Kingdom
All items are packed very carefully, using reused packing materials where possible. Boxes are usually new, but I like to reuse good quality boxes when they fit the item. When needed, I use mail bags that are recyclable. Daynartvintage does not currently offer a gift wrapping service.
I aim to ship orders as quickly as possible, but allow four hours for customers to change their mind and cancel. Therefore, purchases made after 12.30pm GMT, Monday to Friday, will not be shipped the same day, to allow time for this. Of course, please contact me if you would like to discuss your order with me.
