Austrian Sterling Silver & Double Guilloche Enamel Vintage Compact Description
Up for offer is an Austrian sterling silver and guilloche enamel compact from the late 20's/early 30's. Both the front and back are enameled in a gorgeous shade of mint green. The front also features a lovely cut-out sterling silver flower basket with white enamel highlights. The compact measures about 2 and 1/2 inches in diameter. The compact opens to a mirror that is in very poor condition and a rotating powder well. Underneath the powder well are markings of Austria, sterling silver, and 935. There are also a couple other hallmarks that are too small to read.
As lovely as this compact is, it does have its problems. There are two chips on the front - a small one by the hinge and a larger one on the outside rim at the 3:30 position. There is also a larger chip on the back at the 8:30 position. The mirror is essentially shot and should be replaced. The compact is somewhat difficult to open and close, but when it is closed, it is really closed! Having said all this, it still does make a nice display, and the color is abosutely gorgeous. Enlarge the pictures to see exactly what you are offerding on, and email me with any questions.
