This was certainly a very useful item to some lucky flapper, circa 1920. It is a hallmarked sterling silver and enamel compact, with a matching and attached lipstick and eyebrow pencil holder in a mini size.
The round compact has a 2 5/8" diameter. The top lid is covered in white guilloche enamel with a pretty pink flower and trailing green leaves painted over the enamel. The bottom of the compact is silver with a gold wash.
The piece opens to reveal an inner cover that opens to display a large round mirror and even has the original puff and powder. It is hallmarked R & G CO,
There is a chain attached to the latch that is 4" long. The chain has a little oval white enamel plaque and a silver heart that is hallmarked sterling. At the end of the chain there is a small 1 3/4" long mini holder, one side labeled lipstick and the other side labeled eyebrow. How convenient. The holder also has the white guilloche enamel and pink floral design.
Truly a remarkable collectible from the Art Deco era and in very good vintage condition. The enamel is in great shape. The only flaw I see is some scratching on the inner lid.
