This fine old piece is stamped "STERLING" on the front edge of the floral work and on the back "STER". This has a clip for attaching to a chain that has marcasites decorating it. The front has lovely flowers and scrolls with a raised center with a letter engraved in the center. This is app. 1.80inches round and app. .65inches deep. Inside is a nice mirror with just a little light "fogging" with age. This snaps closed tightly.
The compact is in very good condition overall and faces up well. There is some age appropriate wear such as some dings at the rounded edges in spots with three along the bottom base. There are some small ones in the back and some scratches on the bottom. There is some patina with age as it has not been polished. BG17
