Wonderful woods and lake scene on top with shimmering guilloche glistening undertones and guilloche side enamel where you will find a small bit of enamel loss in one spot. The 2 sterling punch mark and hallmarks are tiny and very hard to read on the interior top lid lip. I have circled them in red. The glass diminishing mirror has some light fogging. The interior is gold washed.
A gorgeous compact to be used as a makeup or pill box that easily will fit in any pocket or purse. The ruler is showing inches except for where the enamel loss is shown on the side; the damage is small so i used the mm side of the ruler for accurate representation.This is an antique, high- quality jeweler-made piece. There is a number 12 impressed in the interior bottom. Please expect vintage wear on my compacts as they are old or antique. I really only desire happy customers and if you are looking for new, please look elsewhere.
I try to take the best photos i can and list damage or defects clearly and forthright. I sell collectible and antique compacts.
Most of these are rare and extremely hard to find for the discerning collector. This item is made of sterling and enamel, guilloche, mirror, glass, diminishing, hinge, scene, woodland, polychrome, enamels, handpainted, engine turned.
