This charming turn of the century brass,enamel and sterling compact has lots of detail that make it so special. It has a pretty little pink and yellow floral French enamel disc on the front, set in etched sterling silver. It measures 2.50 inches in diameter and is .75 inches deep, with beautiful heavily embossed sides. The piece is in very good antique condition with normal age wear, and the mirror on the inside top is in very good condition. There are two tiers on the inside--the first was used to hold a powder puff and powder, and the second was meant for rouge. Young girls used to carry this type of bag to a dance. There's a chatelaine ring on the front closure, and I've added a beautiful long and heavy 36" chain, so it's all here for you to use–-day or evening. Just sling it over your shoulder and off you go for the evening!
This piece has been part of our personal collection stashed in a trunk for over thirty years. It's now time to take it out to share with the world!
