Art Deco Compact Coin Makeup Purse 1930s Terri Compact Gold & Black Enamel Wristlet Purse
What a wonderfully unique 1930's Art Deco black enamel and gold tone compact coin wristlet purse.
The piece features a gorgeous engine turned gold bands and black enamel pattern on the lid. It also has a blank central gold cartouche for engraving; as well as a black cloth wristlet with adjustable gold tone sliders for carrying.
It opens with a push button on the front of the case, and opens to reveal a place for holding cash or cards on one side of the case, with a clip to keep them secure. The other side has one spring loaded coin holder, as well as a powder compartment with powder, puff, and a rouge compartment with rouge and another puff, and a snap closure covered lipstick pot, with some hardened lipstick remaining inside.
The base of the compact has a solid shiny black enamel finish. The piece has no missing enamel, and is in wonderful condition. The only issue we found was very slight scuffing, and one pin point ding on the edge of the lid that is barely noticeable, but we wanted to mention it for accuracy.
It measures approximately 3 3/4 inches in length, not including the wristlet, by 2 3/8th inches in width, and about 1/2 inch in depth. The wristlet adds an additional 5 1/2 inches to the length.
It comes complete in a black organza drawstring gift pouch. A perfect holiday gift for the collector of unique vanity accessories.
