Compact collection

These pages are a record of my growing interest in ladies' powder compacts.

Use the index on the left to get around; each page will appear here, in this main central space. There is a catalogue of some of my own compact collection, with a photograph and brief description of each item, and there are some pages of general information as well.

New material is added all the time, as my collection grows, so keep coming back - the newest additions will always be at the top of each page.

 I hope that this site will lead me to others who share my fascination, and help those just starting out on the same road - so, please feel free to email me with views, questions or comment:
