Carved Lucite Big Compact Mirror 1940's Vintage Vanity

Here's a big 1940's era compact made from carved lucite. The top has a mirror on the outside and one on the inside surrounded by a carved wreath of leaves. The bottom has a lathed circular cut out section where the powder would go. Both sections are held together with a metal hinge. It's 4" square and 1/2" thick. The clasp is a tiny rod of amber colored lucite in the base that fits inside an opening in the top... but it has probably shrunk over the years and it no longer fits tight enough to hold them together so there's about a 1/16" opening between top and bottom because they don't come flush together. Someone with a little know-how could probably make a new little piece that would fit and hold. There's a thin ring of lucite going around the edge of the mirrors. On the inside mirror, part of it has come off and part of it has pulled away from the edge but is still attached. The mirrors show a few scratches, hazing and variation in the surface from age. It's still an interesting compact... different from most of them that are metal. Originally purchased from an estate sale. It has been in my collection for many years.
