Description
1950's period black enamel front with an engraved star burst. The case opens on a piano hinge to reveal a clean inside with a matt gold finish. There is a gilt metal retaining bar across the middle of the compartment that is engraved: Melissa Made in England. The back has engine turned check pattern that has a few small dents and minimal wear (see photo). Case is in overall excellent condition with only a few small flaws shown in photos.This company also produced vanity cases in the 40's and 50's. It would make a great case for business cards or notes.The piece measures 3 1/2 x 2 1/2.

The not so "fine print"
Within 7 days of auction end, I must receive your Listia VERIFIED address.If I do not have this in hand within that time, you will forfeit your credits and I will relist. I only ship to VERIFIED addresses. It's Listia's rule. If you're not verified please don't bid. Items mailed within 7-10 days of receiving your info.

Please don't ask for auction to be shortened or to end auction early and offer to give me "x" amount of credits. It's against the rules .
Lastly, in the immortal wise words of Thumper from the movie "Bambi",
"If you can't say something nice… don't say nothing at all".

Thanks and happy bidding!!
