A enchanting fully hallmarked antique sterling silver compact mirror crafted by Crisford & Norris in 1939. This Art Deco vanity was designed for use with loose face powder or as a handbag mirror. The excellent guilloche enamel lid is adorned with the most quintessentially English wild flower, the Dog-rose. The finely executed depiction of this wonderful flower is delightful. The Dog-rose dates back hundreds of years. The Academy of Floral Games gifted a sprig of Dog-rose to poets who displayed considerable literary merit. This ancient ritual inspired many references to this flower in poems and plays, including those written by William Shakespeare. The enamel is gorgeous and without loses or fading. All clasps and hinges work perfectly. The mirror gives a clear and accurate reflection. The base is decorated with an engine turned design of tiny diamond shapes. Measures 7 cm diameter and weighs 92.6 grams. This super vanity comes with an immaculate velvet pouch to protect it.
