Laura Mueller's compact book volume one has a wonderful chapter on the history of military and patriotic compacts. The variety was astounding! Many survived today and are highly collectible!

3" green army military hat compact by Henriette. Brown plastic brim and green top with original eagle emblem. No noticeable surface wear. The inside has never been used but like all of the hat compacts, the mirror is discolored and loose. The mirrors were always poor quality and discolored and de-silvered over time. The original screen and inspection tag are still inside. One of the most popular figural compacts from the 1940s and always a fun one for your collection!.
