Guilloche Enamel Compact Purse 1920's Art Deco Wristlet Dance Purse
Here's a wonderful little vintage Art Deco guilloche compact dance purse with wristlet chain from the 1920's.
It's in wonderful condition, with a pretty butter yellow guilloche with a hand painted pink rose surrounded by blue flowers and green leaves.
The compact purse opens to a clean interior, with a glass mirror that has some age related wear; as can be viewed in our high resolution photos.
It has a lidded double sided rouge compartment, as well as a dial style sifter powder compartment on the other side.
There are two handmade powder puffs that are unused and clean; and the compact purse comes with a burgundy colored velvet drawstring pouch.
The compact hinges and closures work perfectly; the only issue is some mirror silver loss as mentioned above, and a few very faint dings and wear to the bottom of the piece.
It measures approximately 2 1/4 inches in length by 2 inches in width. The wristlet chain adds an additional 4 1/2 inch drop.
The compact is hallmarked "F.H.S.Co" inside. They were a U.S. based company that made fine compacts and jewelry in the early 1900's.
