Art Deco Butterfly Wing Kingfisher Blue Compact 1920s:
Art deco compact with a butterfly wing image of a Kingfisher by a lake. The butterfly wing is in good condition - the Kingfisher is in blue and the lake more of a turquoise - very difficult to photograph and capture the colour. The rest of the cover is a reverse painted picture on celluloid. Celluloid is a bit scratched.The base is made of a silver metal which has rubbed in parts. Some tarnishing to the metal also around the clasp and hinge, and some around the picture. Hinge and clasp work well, with a used pan of powder inside.No maker's mark - there may be one under the powder but I didn't want to remove it. There is a patent no. on the back 2322 3.Mirror still clear but has some silvering spots and marks on it.The lid measures 5.3 cm across, about 1.2 cm deep.From a non-smoking, pet-free home.Any questions, please ask.Please pay within two days.PayPal only.
