Antique lead crystal glass powder jar, swan down powder puff, rare compote shape, silver handle, immaculate, wonderful gift, 4.25" x 3.25". Very rare compote pedestal style powder jar, made of cut lead crystal glass, shaped beautifully and tipped with a silver handle.
The crystal makes a high pitched ching when the lid touches the base and in every way the condition is immaculate. You can see from the photos where the silver tip is attached with a small screw underneath the crystal lid, another quality detail. The silver tip has polished up from a dark silver to a high bright shiny silver with specialist polish so it is most likely pure silver - particularly as there is no wear (as there might be if it were silver plated) although there is no hallmark and it has not been tested. The creamy buttermilk puff is made of swan down and a pastel yellow silk ribbon. It is in immaculate condition for it's age (it bears a faint smell of perfumed powder).This is a truly unique and beautiful piece for the dressing table, it would make a wonderful vintage gift, it has obviously been exceptionally well cared for its whole life and how lovely that the 2 pieces remain together. I will always cover the parcel for loss or damage in transit. Your order will always be packed with exceptional care using majority recycled packing materials. Thank you so much for visiting. This item is made of silver tip and clear cut lead crystal glass, creamy buttermilk swans down, pastel yellow silk ribbon, tiny metal screw attachment. The style is art deco and hollywood regency.
