Encrusted with Venetian glass jewels, this antique French guilloche enamel compact will delight even the most discerning collector.
The lid is a stunning work of filigree with a cobalt blue central enamel plaque featuring hand painted roses. Prong set Venetian jewels surround that center cobalt blue medallion. The sides of this hinged box have been decorated with fancy swirls and vines in repousse. The tiny hinge opens and closes perfectly.
Gorgeous venetian glass and guilloche enamel compact opens to reveal the original mirror and the tiny, original powder puff with silk string attached.
Small area of discoloration to the bottom of the mirror. Commonly found with these antique mirrored glass pieces.
Rarely does one come across these tiny vanity items with the original powder puff still intact and in this size. This particular powder compact is indeed a tiny, dainty and very beautiful piece of the past (please see measurements).
There still remains, upon the tiny powder puff, the scent of the previous owners powder and it is delightful.
This powder box is a collectors dream!
