Art Deco Sterling Enamel Flowering Tree Vintage Estate Powder Compact
This fabulous Art Deco era compact is made of sterling silver and guilloche enameled in jet black, silvery white and light brown colors with touches of red, yellow and green and subtle hints of pink and blue. There is a texture underneath the enamel which shows in the flowers and branches (not the black enamel). The flowers have a luminous glow as you move the compact in the light. I love the flowering tree design - it may represent a fruit tree like cherry, almond, pear, plum or apple. The compact measures about 2 1/8" across. There is expected ageing to the mirror and there are traces of powder inside. Marked 935 on the inside rim of the lid for silver content (actually a slightly higher grade of silver than sterling) and also marked with the number 2 inside on the bottom. Good vintage condition with light age appropriate wear. The enamel is in good condition with a couple of small chips on the edge of the top, one above the hinge and one at about 10 o'clock. Otherwise, only very light surface wear. Perfect to display on any Flapper's vanity! You will love this!!!
