This is a wonderful ladies compact made during the Art Deco era. It bears a patent date of 1926. It is hallmarked STERLING F&B, which stand for the Foster & Bailey Company.
The piece is round with a 2" diameter. It is done in a lovely pale yellow shade of guilloche enamel, but my favorite part is the fabulous center flower basket design. The basket is overflowing with red flowers and set against a white textured enamel backdrop.
There is an etched silver design around the lift up hinged cover, which opens to reveal a pop up mirror and compartment for your powder. Just gorgeous.
Unfortunately, there is some minor loss to the silver enamel just around the edge of the compact, and I have priced it accordingly. Both the top and bottom are pristine. Still a gorgeous piece to display, or use.
Please Note: For any desired International shipments, advance approval is required. Out of country shipments, must be by Express Mail International. Please see my shop terms of sale, which can be found on the right hand side of any page.
