FAB Large Siam Sterling Nielloware Compact--Unused Condition
FREE DOMESTIC SHIPPING with Delivery Confirmation & Full Insurance
This offering is for a vintage, circa 1940's, solid sterling nielloware compact. It is a large 3 1/8" size, with a weight of 112 grams. The exquisitely etched scene design depicts Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn, which is located in Bangkok, on a river bank. It once housed the Emerald Buddha. The scene is a masterpiece, with incredible detail. The base has a very traditional design that resembles Russian nielloware. It has developed a lovely warm patina over the years that I have left untouched. This compact is without flaws or damage of any type. The latch works perfectly. The interior has a sterling lid over the powder well, in exceptionally wonderful condition. The lid is marked "STERLING//SIAM." It closes securely with a slide catch. The mirror is in excellent condition, as is the powder well. This is an exquisite example of the art of nielloware produced in Siam (Thailand) from the 1930`s to the 1950`s. Pluses include its size, its subject, the fabulous design on its base and unused condition. Please see all the photos, including the last that shows a real on site photo of the Temple Complex in Bangkok.
BOX: It also comes in its original, excellent condition presentation box, with a reptile textured design. The interior of the box is lined with red felt. It has hinges, so the top slides away from the base to reveal the compact.
This compact will be welcomed addition for a compact collection, a vintage Asian collectible collection, or as a single object of art. The offering is fully guaranteed to meet all of your expectations. . Please contact me with any questions you may have. Thank you for your visit and for your interest in this offering.
