This vintage, circa 1940s lucite/Plexiglass compact is 5" across. It does not click shut, but just closes to.

Please examine the photos closely. Some issues that might or might not be apparent are: scratches, particularly on the compact's front; a very small chip apparent in the last photo where the blue arrow is pointing near the edge of the compact and the three knuckle hinge; a clasp that does not click closed; and a cloudy mirror. Please do let me know if you'd like more photos.
Thank you for looking.
