Art Deco Double Sided Guilloche Enamel Silver Powder Compact Circa 1920 For Sale
ART DECO DOUBLE SIDED GUILLOCHE ENAMEL SILVER POWDER COMPACT CIRCA 1920
OFFERED FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS THIS EXCELLENT QUALITY ART DECO POWDER COMPACT DATING CIRCA 1920. THE COMPACT MEASURES APPROX. 4 CMS IN DIAMETER AND IS MADE OF UNMARKED SILVER AND IS MOST LIKELY AUSTRIAN OR GERMAN. I CAN FIND NO MARKS ON THE METAL BUT IT HAS TESTED POSTIVE FOR STERLING GRADE SILVER. THE COMPACT HAS WONDERFUL GUILLOCHE ENAMELLING TO THE FRONT AND BACK IN A BABY BLUE AND HAS A LOUPE AT THE TOP AND ORIGINAL HANGING BALE SO THAT IT COULD BE HUNG FROM A CHAIN.
HINGES AND CATCH ARE FIRM AND SECURE AND THE LID OPENS TO REVEAL A CLEAR AND REFLECTIVE FRAMED GLASS MIRROR AND GILDED INTERIOR.
THIS SUPERB LITTLE COMPACT IS SMALL AND SMOOTH AND FITS IN THE PALM OF THE HAND PERFECTLY. IT IS VERY TACTILE AND IS OFFERED IN GOOD CONDITION. THERE IS A TINY AMOUNT OF WEAR TO THE ENAMEL TO THE EDGE OF THE LID WHERE IT MEETS THE HINGE AS WELL AS A TINY BRUISE ON THE OUTER EDGE OF THE TOP JUST AFTER THE 5 O'CLOCK POSITION. THESE FLAWS ARE VERY SMALL AND IN MY OPINION DO NOT DETER FROM THIS QUALITY COMPACT WHICH DISPLAYS VERY WELL. THANK YOU FOR LOOKING.
