This antique French Compact is from my private collection of compacts.
Impressed in the metal on the inside top Made in France
It has been a favorite of mine because of its size and color.
The size is what makes this scarce. It would be hard to find another like it . These
are usually smaller in size.
This compact measures approx. 2.5 inches wide and 1 inch high.
It has 2 compartments inside and has it powder puff too.
The mirror is in very good condition.
The compact its self is in very good condition.
The gold ormolu is still bright and shinny with some small darker area's age related.
The blue stones have lot's of sparkle. No missing stones.
No dings or dents in the metal.
Most the enamel is intact.
The inside is a bright gold wash ormolu.
I do point out: There is some minor green verdigris on the inside edges. does not show on the outside.
Just noticed it when I opened it up.
