19th Century French Compact Red Guilloche Turquoise Stones Rare
Another rare treasure is this 19th Century French powder and mirror compact.
The lid is absolutely stunning with a very unique and intricate design. From the red guilloche medallion and pretty prong set turquoise stones, to the tiny detailed enameling that's done in green and red, this compact is sure to be one of your favs.
It measures approximately 3 inches x 2 1/4 inches. There's a "Made In France" hallmark on the outside bottom of the piece, as well as the number "11" stamped on the interior bottom of the compact.
This compact is in excellent condition, with no missing stones or enamel, and no chips or cracks to the guilloche. The beveled mirror is surprisingly clear considering the age of this piece, with no silvering or cracks. It also comes with a handmade silk powder puff that has not been used.
Another wonderfully rare and stunning antique compact to add to your own collection.
