Vintage Red & Black Enamel Compact Purse 1920s Antique Mirror Powder Rouge & Lipstick Compact Dance Purse
This is a stunning 1920's vintage red and black enamel powder, rouge, mirror and lipstick compact dance purse in excellent condition.
The compact appears to be a D.F.Briggs compact from others we have had. It is not hallmarked that we could find.
The gorgeous red and black enamel is in excellent condition, and the compact is complete with the original bar and link carrying wristlet.
The exterior edges have a beautiful repousse pattern, and the back has a lovely engine turned design.
The only issue we could find is that the mirror does have some age related haze, but it is not broken or chipped.
One side of the compact purse has a rotating powder compartment, and a small rouge compartment, as well as a small lipstick case. Behind the mirror is a secret compartment for holding money, cigs or other women's essentials.
This compact purse is 3 inches in height by 2 inches in width, and is approximately 1 3/4 inches in depth. The chain adds an additional 6 inch drop.
The piece has no dents, dings, rust or corrosion. It's a stunning and very unique piece to use or add to your vintage collection.
