Why is it that when we view perfection in jewelry and compacts that so many people gravitate towards the same pieces? What is it that many of us find so sublime about the Art Deco period? Why do we often feel pulled into the domestic uprising of a street artist trying desperately to survive in urban America when food was payment for a stroke of brush ? What is it about the rich images of Tamara de Lempicka that we find so irresistible?
Perfection is stated and defined in the compact shown that was entirely (hand craved & created by the owner) from that time period. There is not another example or duplicate. (Let me stress there are no other).
