Antique Evans Art Deco Enameled Dance Compact With Wrist Chain - Moon And Birds:
I have been collecting antique compacts for over 25 years and have a rather large collection. I am now selling this collection as I have moved onto collecting something different. Thus is the life of a lifelong antique collector. Please be sure to check out my other sales and stay tuned for more compact sales in the weeks to come.
This sale is for an unmarked Evans enameled gold washed (looks silver in photos but is gold washed) dance compact with bar link wrist chain.
Front has a gorgeous enameled night scene with yellow moon, white birds with blue tail feathers on black background and white border. Back has engine turned simple design. Embossed design along entire edge. Chain is in excellent condition. Overall exterior condition is excellent with age appropriate wear.
Interior is gold toned and has wells for powder and rouge. Also includes a lipstick tube. Powder well has rotating sifter. Framed mirror in good condition. Mirror is hinged and has a compartment behind it - possibly for cigarettes?
Measures 3" wide 2 1/8" tall. Chain measures 8 1/2" from one end to another.
Please be sure to take a good look at ALL photos and do not hesitate to ask any questions!
I do not ship outside of the contiguous USA. Payment is expected within 3 days of sales end.
