It is rare to find antique compacts combined with cigarette compartments in such good condition. The light patches are reflections from the studio lights. This charming antique combination case was made in 1921. The interior is beautifully gilded. The cigarette case / compact is fully hallmarked Chester Assay Office. The lid is hallmarked " T & S Sterling Chester Assayed Year 1921 " & the powder well lid is also fully hallmarked. This rare combination case was made by E J Trevitt & Sons The lid & base are decorated with a wonderful Art Deco design of parallel lines which in turn are filled with tiny chevrons. The inner case is very appealing, having a small mirror surrounded by a silver bezel. Below this is the vermeil powder well. As you can see from the images the vermeil interior still retains its vibrancy. There is also a little puff which looks as if it is made from lambs wool - too coarse to be swan's down. The mirror gives a good reflection but has a few age spots. The recess / vesta case is beautifully gilded. The elastic strap is still fairly tight. Measures 3 1/4 " X 2 1/2 ".
