Talk about a "designer" accessory -- this post WWII "Bird in Hand" compact was designed by artist Salvador Dali himself. Of course you would never really use it, but talk about an interesting collector's piece! He's a cute little bird (not at all bizarre like so many of Dali's art pieces) with all kinds of compartments inside. He opens up by pushing on the tail, which reveals a place for powder (the original puff is intact) and a place in the tail for pills, plus his head pulls off as a place for lipstick. $1695
Very cool and funky -- they just don't make them like this anymore!
