This is a lovely example of a camera powder compact and cigarette case, dating to the 1930s or 1940s. This Kamra compact contains a lipstick holder, a metal mirror and a cigarette compartment. The exterior is silver tone metal and green enamel. There is a silver tone motif on the front of the compact, marking the mirror section. The powder compartment is accessed by pushing the shutter button, and “Foreign” is engraved inside.
