Antique opaque glass box powder box powder dish Swansdown powder puff
There are some things in this house that is cherished for the fact of who it was brought from. I brought this item years ago from one of my favorite antique dealers. We owned an antique co-op at that time and Mike Marotte was one of our dealers. His booth had the very finest items , luxury to the max. Anytime I would go into the shop to work behind the counter, he would lead me back to his large booth section to show me his latest found treasure. This item is one of them. When he showed me this, no sales pitch was needed, I loved it immediately and so will you. The puff does appear to be original to the Bristol Glass vanity powder box.
The glass is beautiful , an opaque that the light shines through. The color is a soft gray blue. Hand painted golden trim has minimum wear at the crown of the lid's finial. The hand painted enamel has no wear...it is a thick enamel with rich vibrant colors.
The puff is wonderful and in fine condition..clean, appears never used.
The knob handle appears to be solid celluloid. The fabric that covers to dome of the puff is a textured like homespun cotton, not silk, so, it has survived the years well, not shredded like silk does.
1 tiny surface flake inside as shown in the photo.
This item is truly marvelous. From my cabinet to you, a truly wonderful treasure. Thank you for enjoying my treasures, best wishes, Linda
