It is light weight and made for a ladies vanity. I believe that it is typical of the 30's. The nail file is 6" tall and 3/4" wide, while the container is 4" wide by 1 1/2" tall. They look great together and they are both in excellent condition.
The lid of the powder box has a little rough spot that you can feel. The bottom of the powder puff box is signed by velva pear. This item is made of vintage nail file and vintage powder puff box, celluloid powder box, celluloid lid, celluloid file handle, butterscotch color, metal file.
