Ultra Rare "Original by Robert" Compact Chair w/ PUFF for the Serious Collector
"Original by Robert"
Compact in the shape of a Chair
A book item for the serious collector
shown in many collectors book and is very rare.
The jewels are all hand set with wires and prongs.
Each compact or vanity item that was produced
look similar but the jewels are hand applied and
will be in a different arrangement.
These where made in the 40's.
Robert was a jeweler and is famous for his
compacts, vanity items and jewelry.
This compact has a lot of bling....all stones present.
You can see in the pictures how these rhinestones catch the light.
Note from the Seller:
These chair compacts made by Robert are
similar in a couple of ways...I have found that
his choice of rhinestones where really nice ...
they sparkle richly when the light catches them.
There is a noteable difference from other rhinestones in my opinion.
Robert used Majestic Compacts for the seat.
All the seats are the same ..They have cushion shape
sides ....and they tend to have gold loss and or
turn dark with age.
This compact is still nice and shiny...
***I note: A nic to the metal located on the top near the edge by the clasp side.
The chair compact should be a good investment.
They bring the highest price of his vanity items that I have seen.
This price is base on previous sales of my Roberts items.
