Lovely Djer-Kiss Powder Rouge Compact with Enamel Accents, Original Box, 1920s
The compact has a gold-tone finish with a border of tiny flowers and leaves on a green enamel background. There is a section for powder, including its own puff, and a section for rouge, also with its own puff. The mirror unfolds from the rouge section, and has a standard reflection on one side and a minimizing reflection on the other side so you can see your entire face.
The compact has obviously been used – there is some powder and rouge remaining, but the puffs are soiled. The gilt finish on top and sides has some wear and the bottom has a few scratches (see photo). Reflections from the camera appearing as dark areas can be seen in the photo of the top of the compact. The mirror is in very good condition on both sides, and both the interior mirror closure and the exterior compact closure are in good working condition.
The rouge puff ribbon is marked Djer-Kiss, and Djer-Kiss is also engraved on the side of the compact. The compact measures 2-1/2 inches in diameter, and is 3/4 inches high.
The box, which is original, has a mottled green paper covering with the Djer-Kiss logo in the center. It measures almost 3 inches square. The paper covering is worn at the edges and corners, but there is no other damage.
This item will be protectively boxed and mailed, with free postage and insurance included.
