Here we offer an exquisite .800 silver and enamel compact in fabulous condition. The silver is engraved all along the perimeter of the top in swirls and very ornate at the hinge and closure. The scalloped side is engraved and the bottom in a floral design.
The handpainted picture under enamel portrays a romantic couple in period dress with the young man playing a guitar and the lady reading a paper. There are 2 more people in the background. Beautiful colors. The enamel is free of cracks or lines. I see just 1 very tiny scratch bottom left.
The interior is gilded and the beveled mirror is in good shape. The compact retains the original powder screen and puff (and powder residue).
The interior bottom is marked .800 and a little lozenge shape hallmark. It closes with a nice snap.
It measures 3" x 2 1/4" x 3/16"
