Vtg Deco Powder Compact Mirror Makeup Tooled Leather Gold Ornate Hand Bag Purse For Sale

Vtg Deco Powder Compact Mirror Makeup Tooled Leather Gold Ornate Hand Bag Purse

I found this wonderful RARE ART DECO c.1920's - 1930's LEATHER EMBOSSED BRASS CLAM SHELL COMPACT at the untouched very old estate of a 96 year old woman who took in boarders. As you know if you are a serious compact collector, CONDITION IS EVERYTHING! This is a fabulous substantial compact measuring 3" long X 2 7/8" wide X 1/2"deep with the clasp having a 5/16" profile. This was probably made in Florence, Italy in the 1920's or 1930's, as they are well known for their amazing leather work. This compact is signed on the inside as well as on the original powder screen "MADE IN ITALY". I do not believe that this compact was ever used, as the original screen looks unused and there is no powder residue. The leather on the compact is just exquisite, stretched tight and of wonderful quality, buttery soft. The embossed design is absolutely gorgeous, with an intricate gold pattern of swirls and scrolls. The design is gold and antique burnt orange on black. The leather on the underside is navy black leather with no design, just the navy leather. The top of the compact is in wonderful vintage condition, it presents beautifully. There is one 1/4" area if held up to the light where the leather is a bit dull, but this does not detract at all. The design is excellent, not scuffed, displays nicely. The underside leather does have expected tiny scratches, a teeny dent, but nothing that is worrisome (see photos). This compact is 65+ years old! This is a well made compact of the highest quality. It boasts a sturdy brass frame, bold tight clasp and original beveled mirror. The brass frame is still shiny and bright with a couple teeny scratches, hardly worth mentioning. The interior is clean and I do not believe ever used. The beveled mirror is in fine condition, a little darkening of the silver in random small spots along the edges. For its age it is in excellent antique condition. I am very fussy and when I found this lovely compact, I was just thrilled! Everything about it is just gorgeous and the highest quality. It really is just exquisite and you will probably not see another of these for a very long time if at all. I collect compacts but I need to downsize, so I am only keeping my Richard Hudnut compacts, as those are my personal favorites! Good luck on this, this is a STEAL-of-a-DEAL price for a very very rare compact, but I need to downsize so my loss is your gain. Be sure to check out my other eclectic sales, as I will be listing many more vintage items this week. I have fabulous vintage and antique handbags,perfumes,dresser dolls and powder boxes from my personal collection. From a no smoking home, of course!
