AN ART DECO SOLID SILVER & GUILLOCHE ENAMEL GEM SET COMPACT MIRROR BOX 1939 82g
This is for an antique Art Deco solid silver guilloche enamel gem set compact mirror box, by Walker & Hall, hallmarked Chester 1938.
Made of solid silver, square in form with curved sides and a hinged lid. The lid is decorated with a square panel of guilloche enamel, which has a pale yellow sherbet hue, and is set with a princess cut green peridot within a border of marcasite, flanked by two sloping panels of green guilloche enamel. The silver beneath the enamel is engine turned engraved, the central panel depicts a radiating pattern, showing through beneath the translucent enamel. The hinged lid opens to the interior for storing vanity powder, with a circular mirror within the lid. This is clearly hallmarked with the lion passant sterling silver mark, the rarer three wheat sheaves town mark for Chester the date letter 'n' for 1939, and the makers marks 'W&H' for Walker and Hall.
The condition is generally excellent, without damage or repair, there are a few very small areas of wear to the enamel, which is otherwise near perfect, and there are no dents or scratches. Please see images.
