This is one of the most beautiful vintage Art Deco Era gold compacts with a matching lipstick holder. On one side of the compact is an ornate raised design of a basket of flowers surrounded by garlands with a floral motif and an ornate raised border. On the opposite side of the compact the design is the same with the exception that the basket of flowers are replaced with a monogram of HP in an oval. It is connected by a beautiful chain to the lipstick holder which is also heavily decorated with a raised basket of flowers that matches the compact and a very ornate design, and also has the monogram HP in an oval at the top of the lid, please refer to photos. The lipstick is also attached to the chain by a clasp and can be removed. Both the inside of the compact and the inside of the lipstick lid are both stamped 14k. The entire piece is in excellent original condition free of dents and scratches with the exception of the mirror which is fine but does not reflect quite as well as it originally did. This is a true work of art created by an accomplished jeweler. It weighs 54.4 grams. The compact measures 2 inches in diameter and the lipstick is 2 inches long. The entire piece with the chain is 5 inches long. This is an exceptional gold compact and an excellent investment that would highly compliment a vintage collection.
