Manufacturer: Schuco, Germany
Figural novelty compact; shaped like a monkey it is jointed and covered with Mohair. The lipstick tube is hidden in its neck and the powder and the mirror are tucked inside its belly. To open the compact area, raise the head about 1/4" so the collar can swing open, and to close, slide the head down to lock the compact. The lipstick (missing) should be in the neck area. The arms and legs are mobile, the paws and ears are felt - the size 3-3/4 inches - Circa 1920's. Condition: felt replaced on feet, hands are original, mirror shows normal age - otherwise great, Mohair is very good and this is quite a rare, early piece. No puff, no lipstick remain with compact.
