REDUCED Art Deco 20s Compact Square Silk Power Sifter Guilloché Aluminium 1920s Paris

$11.89 $23.79

Shipping to United States: $28.29

This is a beautiful little French compact. It’s part of my own compact collection, which I’m breaking up.
The Powder compact is aluminium and has been Guilloché, turned, with a true mirror which is distressed. The original silk hand made square powder sifter and powder still remain.

I purchased this is Paris in 1981, and was told it made in 1921 (it was the sellers mothers)

I haven’t used it at all as it’s been stored in my collection
It’s such a beautiful tactile trinket it should be used and admired.

Engine turning, (Guilloché)
also known as jewelling, is a fine geometric pattern turned onto metal as a finish. Aluminium is often the metal chosen to inscribe, but any appropriate surface can be finely machined to produce intricate repetitive patterns that offer reflective interest and fine detail.

Stunning vintage condition
