Marathon Compacts & Vanities c1927 Advertisement

Beautiful engine turned and enameled compacts and vanities by Marathon in an advertisement from a 1927 Huntley & Co. catalog. These compacts were stated to be made up of "white gold composition silver", in other words, a white metal alloy made to look like white gold or sterling silver. 

#179 was set with "French marcasites" and an amber stone.
