1920's D.F. Briggs Gold Filled & Guilloche Powder Compact Wristlet Purse Art Deco Rare
Wow, a rare and stunning 1920's D.F. Briggs green gold filled guilloche dance compact purse with wristlet chain.
The piece is in fantastic condition, and is 2 1/2 inches in diameter and is 1/3 inch in thickness.
The compact opens to a clear large mirror, a powder compartment with only traces of powder remaining, a full rouge compartment, two working lipstick holders with a small amount remaining, as well as both of the powder puffs that are in good condition.
There is the original paper liner for the powder with the following information "Green Gold Filled The D.F. Briggs Co. Warranted"
The piece also has an engraved hallmark of "D.F.B.CO" on the frame of the mirror.
The hinge and clasp work perfectly, and the only damage that we could find is a very tiny and faint indentation on the back of the piece.
The piece has a beautiful striped engine turned design on the lid, and an oval white guilloche with a hand painted rose with green leaves.
The edges of the compact have a lovely repousse design, and a starburst style design to the back of the piece.
The wristlet is a pretty and delicate chain that is approximately 12 inches in total length.
This is truly a lovely and unique piece that would enhance any vintage compact collection.
