Art Deco Stratnoid Foil Backed Geisha Lady Powder Compact Circa 1920 For Sale
ART DECO STRATNOID FOIL BACKED GEISHA LADY POWDER COMPACT CIRCA 1920
THE COMPACT MEASURES APPROX. 5 CMS SQUARE AND IS MADE OF CHROME METAL WITH MACHINE TURNED PATTERN ON THE BACK AND CENTRAL OBLONG BLANK CARTOUCHE. THE LID HAS A WONDERFUL PICTURE OF A GEISHA LADY HOLDING A LANTERN AND WEARING THE MOST SPECTACULAR OUTFIT WITH BUTTERFLY DESIGN ON THE WIDE SLEEVES. SHE IS STANDING ON A BRIDGE OVER A RIVER WITH PAGODAS IN THE BACKGROUND. THE PICTURE IS MOUNTED OVER BLUE FOIL WHICH PROVIDES THE COLOUR FOR THE WATER AND THE SKY. THE PICTURE ITSELF IS PRINTED ON THE UNDERSIDE OF A CELLULOID DISC COVERING.
HINGES AND CATCH ARE FIRM AND SECURE AND THE CASE OPENS TO REVEAL A CLEAR AND REFLECTIVE POLISHED METAL MIRROR UNDER THE LID. THE POWDER WELL IN THE BASE IS COVERED BY A SIMPLE ROTATING DISC AND IS MARKED WITH A REG. DESIGN NUMBER.
THIS PRETTY ART DECO COMPACT IS OFFERED IN GOOD VINTAGE CONDITION WITH NO DENTS OR DINGS TO THE CASE AND NO METAL TARNISH. THE PICTURE IS IN GOOD ORDER BUT THE FOIL HAS LOST SOME OF IT'S BLUE COLOURING. NONETHELESS, A VERY ATTRACTIVE COMPACT AND A FOIL DESIGN I HAVE NOT SEEN BEFORE. THANK YOU FOR LOOKING.
