Vtg French Limoges Metal Powder Compact With Cobalt Blue & Gold Porcelain Lid For Sale

Vtg French Limoges Metal Powder Compact With Cobalt Blue & Gold Porcelain Lid

This is a round vintage gold metal powder compact, probably dating back to the late 1940s or very early 1950s. It's signed LIMOGES on the front and I believe it was made in France. The lid features a round framed piece of porcelain - a gold hand-painted Colonial courting couple against a cobalt blue enameled background (see first five photos below). The back of the compact contains a gold engine-turned design consisting of slightly grooved concentric circles, all converging in the center (see last photo below). Overall condition is very good to excellent.

The compact measures 3" in diameter. Inside, you see an excellent framed mirror, very clear and totally useable. The body of the compact has an open well or compartment for holding loose face powder. However, there currently is no powder in the well. There's a round cloth-topped powder pad present, but I do not believe it is original to the compact. However, this pad was there when I acquired the compact & so I am including it with this sale.

As indicated above, the compact is in very good to excellent vintage condition. All the beautiful blue and gold enamel is there and I see NO dents or dimples or anything else wrong with the metal. Even the underside is in very good condition with only a few discolorations and spots, probably from age and usage. The only reason I didn't describe this compact as being in excellent or even near mint condition is because I do not have the original powder pad and screen for it. Actually, both the front and back on this are in EXCELLENT condition.

About Shipping ...

I will ship this LIMOGES porcelain-topped gold metal powder compact to most places in the world. I must receive payment 5 days after the close of the sale or I will re-list the item. Returns OK within 14 days from the end of the sale, but only if item(s) are misrepresented in the listing. Please pay for this via PayPal.

Whenever possible, I am happy to combine your purchases into just one package to save you shipping fees. I can wait up to five days to get paid, should you want to wait and see if you have won other items I currently am listing. If this what you're planning to do, be sure to send me a note & let me know! Also, if you live anywhere near me (North Detroit suburb), we can make arrangements for you to pick up your purchase(s) and thereby eliminate the need for shipping fees altogether.

  • For U.S. Residents: Shipping rates always include Delivery Confirmation. You can opt to have this shipped to you via domestic First Class Mail - or - Priority Mail, your choice. For individual items/listings that sell for $100.00 or more, I will purchase postal insurance for you.
  • For Non-U.S. Residents: Unless you are a regular international customer of mine, I can no longer ship to non-U.S. locations via International First Class Mail or International Flat Rate Priority Mail. I MUST ship this to you via regular International Priority Mail or International Express Mail, as this is the ONLY way that the U.S. Postal Service offers delivery tracking services to your country. Unfortunately, the U.S. Postal Service no longer offers tracking services for packages shipped via International First Class Mail or International Flat Rate Priority Mail. However ... if you have previously won one or more of my sales, I can offer you International First Class postal rates. Please email me for an amended invoice.

    IMPORTANT: Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility. Please check with your country’s Customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to offerding/buying. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up – do not confuse them for additional shipping charges.

IF you have any problem, issue, or concern with this item ... please contact me before leaving negative or neutral response, or low DSRs. I do make every effort to describe each item to the best of my ability, and to take the best digital pictures I can. However, I am not an expert, far from it, & have been known to make unintentional mistakes. If something is amiss, please give me a chance to do everything I can to make it right.
