Antique Guilloche Compact Purse Wristlet Powder Compact Vintage Dance Purse Snuff Box RARE
This is a really stunning and rare little antique guilloche powder compact or snuff box with wristlet chain from the late 1800's.
This little dance purse is in good vintage condition, with only some tiny dings and tarnish to the compact.
We are not sure of the exact age or origin of this piece, as it is not hallmarked in any way, but it is clearly very old. Probably one of the oldest compacts we have listed.
The top lid is decorated with hand painted flowers on a white guilloche background.
It opens to a mirror that is in good condition, but it has some slight signs of aging.
The powder compartment is clean and empty, and comes with the original unused tiny powder puff.
The hinge is in excellent condition, and the compact opens and closes as it should, with no damage.
It measures 53.5mm in length by 29.5mm in width including the hinge, and height is approximately 14mm.
It has a gold tone wristlet chain for easy carrying.
This is a really fantastic and unique antique piece that would enhance any vintage vanity collection.
