Art Deco Sterling Silver 9ct Gold And Ruby ‘Asprey & Co.’ Compact - London 1936

Sale price$925.00 AUD

Laybys welcome! Contact Us today to secure your dream piece.
We wish our initials were ‘RA’ but alas this stunning all original Art Deco compact is destined for another!

Crafted from Sterling silver and 9ct gold to the trim and set with eight scissor cut Rubies (not tested but almost definitely man made) to the thumb piece push clasp.

Fine engine turning to both front and back with a grooved edging in 9ct rose gold and the initials ‘RA’ in vertical orientation in 9ct gold to the centre.

Measuring a convenient hand sized 8.3cm x 5.5cm, original mirror to the inside which is in excellent condition, and one the little cover which the face powder would have sat beneath.

We know people use their phones these days to check their make-up… gone are the days of decorum mostly but.. for a special occasion wouldn’t you be the talk of the evening if you popped this beauty out of your purse!

CONDITION
