Napier Military Hat Powder Compact

Napier Military Hat Post-War Powder Compact

The Napier Co., known for its vast assortment of finely made vanity items, including compacts. Today we share one of our favorites—a military-motif compact. There are at least two known variations of this compact. The one shown, as well as one with a USN insignia. Dating these has been a challenge, but our educated guess based on the metals used for this particular case is that is is post-WWII.
