Antique Art Deco Solid Silver & Guilloche Hand Painted Enamel Square Compact:
A stylish antique late Art Deco solid sterling silver compact, square in shape with canted corners and a beautiful hand painted guilloche enamel lid.
The lid of the compact has a rose through yellow to green tinted background, with a stunning hand painted scene of a landscape with blossoming tree surrounded by woodland flowers and further trees in the background. The canted edges are coloured with green enamel, with the corner sections coloured rose. The inner lid and the underside of the case are both engine turned.
The case has a push button opener revealing a silver cover with further catch. The powder compartment within contains the original gauze cover, and the inside of the lid has a clean bevelled edge mirror.
Hallmarked to the side:
Width of powder recess: 5.3 cm, 2 1/8 inches
A superb compact in good antique condition. The enamel is in excellent condition. The hallmark to the side is slightly rubbed, but clearly decipherable. The lid catch does not close properly and pops open, but this could be repaired. Please see the images provided which complement this description.
