Art Deco Sterling & Enamel Vintage Estate Compact
This is one of the sweetest most beautiful Art Deco era compacts we have ever offered! The top is guilloche enameled in colors of light aqua blue and silvery white with floral rose design in pink and green colors with dashes of black. There is a beautiful pattern underneath the enamel. The outside of the compact is made of sterling silver and the metal inside the compact is a gold colored metal showing wear to silver color on the high points as seen. Only the outside of the compact is sterling. The edges have a fancy design. The compact measures about 2" by 2" by 7/16". The total weight is about 72.4 grams. It is signed with the letters EAM for ELGIN AMERICAN MANUFACTURING CO. and also marked STERLING. The mark is very faint and very hard to read, especially since it is on the linear design of the back. There are traces of powder inside, and I believe there was a removable moon shaped piece of metal on the inside which is no longer present. Good condition with age appropriate wear. There is expected ageing to the mirror, and the wear to the inside metalwork already mentioned. The latch work well. The enamel is in good condition with some typical surface scratching, and there are a few tiny imperfections that were in the making - nothing that detracts at all. Please feel free to email us with reasonable offers, and we're happy to answer any questions you may have. What a perfect piece to display on your vanity! You will treasure this!!!
