Superb estate find! Circa early 1900s, Edwardian art deco era treasure. Rare to find in such lovely condition, measures approximately 3 1/8" wide by 2 3/4" at its highest point. Lovely chain handle is designed like a watch chain and is about 13" long.
Compact purse opens on a hinge, is an unmarked white metal, amazing detail, hand painted with pink roses, flower detail is sweet and accents powder blue enameling with black enamelled border and a wonderful scalloped design. Looks like guilloche or champleve to me...the two types of enameled finishes always confuse me!
When opened, the insides reveal a mirror on one side and fitted compartments for powder and blush makeup. Appears to be complete and all original.
Even the back side of the piece is beautiful with a screaming art deco machine worked design.
Front has been hand engraved with the initials "C.B.Y" in Edwardian script.
No damage or repair, enamel is perfect, I would call this excellent condition. Truly a rare find! collector quality and sooo grateful to add it to my collection!
