This is gorgeous hand engraved silver compact. It is from the 50-60s and was purchased in Europe. It has never been used. The powder screen is perfect and the little sky blue puff is still a ball of fluff. The back and front are the same with engraving all over each side. The two finger clasp is tight but still easy to open. It is made of 820 silver. This is sometimes called European silver as it was often used in jewelry and vanity items. There are two 820 marks. One is on the mirror frame and the other under the powder screen. This is a wonderful addition to your dresser top or your collection.
