Art Deco Red Glass Stones & Enamel Painting Dance Estate Necessaire Compact - For a Flapper
This fabulous Art Deco era makeup compact is done in a brass gold colored metal. It has a flower design in cold painted enamel in colors of rd and white. This has a cord handle, so you can carry it like a purse. On the inside, there is a place for powder or rouge. The compact measures about 2 1/16" across by 9/16" at the sides. The length of the cord doubled is about 6 1/8" long (as you would carry it). The tassel measures about 4 1/2" long including the fancy metal cap. Good vintage condition with age appropriate wear as seen, including some wear and darkening to the metalwork, a chip to one of the bullet shaped red glass stones, typical expected ageing to the mirror (might be a reflective piece of metal instead of an actual mirror), and the tassel and cord show wear as seen. The tassel no longer hangs straight down, but is wavy or kinky. The compact opens well and closes with a snap. This is a great piece and about 80 to 90 years old. This is sure to bring out the flapper in you! You will treasure this!!!
