A fabulous antique compact beautifully made in sterling with a 10k rose gold top.
The top is hand engraved with an intricate aesthetic design showing the graceful influences of Art Nouveau.
The magnificent exotic bird is surrounded with flowering leafy vines.
The engraving has very fluid lines and fine detail, the execution is meticulous.
Inside there is a beveled edge mirror, the frame in the bottom pulls out.
The back has a great textured grid of small pyramids, all four sides have a linear design.
Excellent condition, no damage or wear, the mirror is excellent with a few very light blemishes.
Measures 2.75" square by 3/8" deep, total weight is 130 grams.
There are two hallmarks that I can't decipher but believe they are French.
The top and bottom were carefully tested with acid to determine silver and gold content.
A fine quality compact beautifully designed and made in sterling and rose gold.
Please view the large photos for the best clarity and detail.
