How unusual! According to an ad run in Harper’s Bazaar in 1943:

Handy Andy (is a) new powder compact made completely from non-essentials. With its huge mirrored bottom, large velour puff, loose powder sifter and drawstring closing – Handy Andy is the newest way to carry your make-up! Blessedly convenient too, because you can toss in your lipstick, and other beauty essentials.

Original cost $1.50!

Made of khaki twill. Made by Rex Fifth Avenue of New York...
