Very beautiful item. I love it

Cindy R. - Menlo Park, USA - 26 June 2024


Danielle made it feel like a personal shopping experience. The care, attention to detail and the time taken to understand what I was looking ensured that I found the perfect antique compact. Not only was the compact itself perfect, the history and attributes of the compact aligned with the purpose of the gift. Danielle knew it was a special gift and since I was on the other side of the world, she followed up and made sure the gift was perfectly presented and delivered, even letting me know that it had been delivered successfully.

I made someone very happy by giving them a thoughtful gift, Danielle and the lovely items she sells deserve the real kudos.

Thank you Danielle, I simply could not be happier.

Denise S. Ohio USA - 23 October 2023


I am delighted with my mourning locket. Danielle went above and beyond in helping me to choose a locket for my recently deceased husband’s hair. We spent months liaising;  nothing was too much trouble for Danielle, even though I was a difficult customer. The beauty and the sentiment of this locket is helping me though this very difficult time. Thank you so very much Danielle, Patricia.

This case is very special to me because my love affair with him started so long ago. Sometimes when my heart says "Yes" my mind says "No" so I wait. And I wait.

If you investigate Emile Grenet you will find that he was an incredible artist in silver. And yet, no where can you find his pieces to see his work. Except now! This piece could be a One Only and I am the very lucky lady to have him. His work is like a beautiful drawing on silver except that it is, of course, really engraving. Artistry unheard of in today's time.

I can't help but wonder if she was designed for some very lucky lady a long time ago. She seems very unique and timeless. And only Gucci would design something so heavy with silver that she almost needs to be on a vanity rather than in a purse. Exquisite!!

Sally M. Covington USA - 12 December 2014


Who has the most beautiful Foster and Bailey's?? I DO! Christiana could be #1!! I truly adore her and she just happens to be my all time favorite color. WOW!! Thank you Eleanor. Did you find her just for me? I bet you did because she is PERFECT! PLUS, PLUS....SHE CAME IN 7 DAYS....SUPER FAST FOR A UK TO USA SHIP!!!

Sally M. Covington USA - 21 November 2014


Bold Power - Greatest Champion - my Kendra Compact. She is the symbol of what heroes are made of. And now she graces my military collection that is so wonderful that only Eleanor could have ever found the pieces. PLUS I GOT HER IN 7 DAYS WHICH IS SUPER FAST FOR A UK TO USA SHIP!!! THANK YOU!

Sally M. Covington USA - 21 November 2014


Absolutely pristine condition and from my favorite seller! Happiness!

Karen S. Birmingham USA - 21 November 2014


Totally glorious duo! I have been watching and wanting them for the longest. Finally I was able to purchase before they got swept away by someone else. Thank goodness. I now have a shrine for the military with these in the forefront. I am thrilled. Once again, and always, Eleanor has brought out the best. Thank you!!!

Sally M. Covington USA - 13 November 2014


Dealing with Eleanor was wonderful. My item was a gift, and the recipient was thrilled. I wouldn't hesitate to shop here again.

Barbara O. Bray Ireland - 13 November 2014


Very quick sending, and a very nice item. Thanks for the beautiful package.

Romain L. Buc France - 12 November 2014


Il est superbe! Je n'ai pas d'autres mots pour ce poudrier ancien, unique, original et en excellente condition. La livraison a été rapide, je suis très satisfaite de mon achat.

Magali B. Lyon France - 7 November 2014


Purchased at Halloween - a Voodoo compact initially - but now that she is HERE..... OMG, she is so much more. Absolutely perfect, and her enamel is breathtaking. The black is so rich and shiny!! I adore her completely and thank Eleanor for this prize!!

Sally M. Covington USA - 6 November 2014


Serenades should be sung in her honor.....she is that captivating! Beautiful, shiny silver with engravings only a true artist could make - absolutely perfect in every way. Thank you Eleanor. She was an exquisite find!!

Sally M. Covington USA - 6 November 2014

Ann S. Halifax UK - 21 October 2014


Excellent seller who goes above and beyond expectation. She has a real passion for the items she sells. I hope to do business again.

Leigh D. Maroubra Australia - 20 October 2014


Gorgeous compact, so unusual, always a pleasure to receive compacts from a great seller, thank you VERY much

Lizbeth B. Camelford UK - 16 October 2014


How PERFECT!!!! Very Jazzy - I adore the hammered effect. He is totally THE BEST!!! So exciting to have him in my collection! Thank you Eleanor!

Sally M. Covington USA - 7 October 2014


I have been so excited since I first saw her! And now that she's here, I find myself speechless. How could anyone be able to engrave with such artistry!? All the details...such tiny markings. Amazing. Eleanor has totally outdone herself. What an incredible find and she's MINE!!!

Sally M. Covington USA - 7 October 2014


Capricious comes to mind! Her lid is adorned with so many opened flowers and her backside flowers are mostly closed for the day. HA! What a designer! A real artist! And I get to enjoy his work through her forever!!! She looks beautiful in my collection and SO UNIQUE!!! Eleanor is the BEST of the BEST. Thank you for another treasure to cherish!

Sally M. Covington USA - 29 September 2014


Just love these compacts and the extra info is wonderful, thank you.

Louise I. Staines UK - 28 September 2014


Wendy! What a truly blessed lady you were. Someone really loved you to have chosen something so beautifully designed, and to have taken the time to have had your name engraved on it. The leaves that surround this compact mean eternal and, no doubt, the love felt for Wendy was just that - eternal. She will be cherished in my care, and that feeling of love felt forever.

Sally M. Covington USA - 15 September 2014


What a Spiffy little compact! She is expertly made with careful attention to detail, plus the black enamel is GORGEOUS. Not to mention...the BEST part....the Spaniel. I totally adore her and kick myself for taking so long to buy. Any other home for her would have been a disaster. Thank you Eleanor for everything!!

Sally M. Covington USA - 15 September 2014


So spectacular! True Art Deco and for sure a DIVA! I adore her for 1000 reasons but best of all is that she FITS! She is right at home with all my other Rare Beauty's and a huge Thank You for Eleanor. She works 24/7 for Me, for You, for all of us so that we can all have collections "to die for"!

Sally M. Covington USA - 11 September 2014


I chose to buy him because he is so rare. I also chose to buy him because he is a Canadian Mounted Police Officer. He commands respect. I like that. Now that I have him, I really think that it is the horse that I like the best. Regardless of the reasons, I adore him and he's special. And of course, I have Eleanor to thank as always.

Sally M. Covington USA - 3 September 2014


Magnificent!! Glorious!! And I am told that she is VERY RARE! A striking 1929 compact that has been treasured all these years. And the lucky girl will continue her good fortune with me. I feel honored to have her and thank Eleanor for this fabulous "find". Actually all my cherished compacts are mine because of her. If you want only The Best, buy from Eleanor. She handles all the research and includes all the history with every purchase!!

Sally M. Covington USA - 3 September 2014


Beautiful quality. Eleanor was a pleasure to deal with. Consistently quick to respond to emails. Thank you!

Shona W. Victoria Australia - 2 September 2014


Two gorgeous little girls full of giggles and grins atop of one of Statton's Best. I understand that she's so rare that you have only seen this one! And best of all is that SHE'S MINE!! Thank you Eleanor for all that you do. You are an AWESOME seller and have become a true friend. Thank you.

Sally M. Covington USA - 27 August 2014


Foster & Bailey at their top with this piece. Almost luminous. The enamel is perfect and her tiny little puffs, rouge and powder all there for me. Eleanor did an outstanding job in boxing all her little pieces individually so there could not be any damage. She arrived beautifully. Her color is Azure like the sky. Thank you, I am thrilled with her!!

Sally M. Covington USA - 21 August 2014


Tinkerbell!! OMG how precious is she!! The little fairy with her basket of surprises and WOW the pretty lady is shocked. You can almost hear her say, "FOR ME???" A fabulous find and a big thanks to Eleanor for her successful search!!

Sally M. Covington USA - 21 August 2014


I bought this compact as a "something old" I was doing for a friends wedding (Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue). From the presentation in the little box, to the extra information detailing the history behind the compact, to the compact itself, I absolutely loved it. I am yet to give it to my friend as her wedding isn't until October, but I have no doubt she will love too. Thank you

Jessica E. New Malden UK  - 19 August 2014


My second Asprey and not my last!!! Exquisite in every detail and she, like my other, shines like no other compact anywhere. Asprey must use the highest grade of silver possible. I couldn't be more thrilled, and find myself really honored to have something so beautiful. Lucky girl gets to reside next to her sister FOREVER! Thank you Eleanor!!!!

Sally M. Covington USA - 16 August 2014


Thank you Eleanor for this beautiful compact. Came beautifully packaged, So pleased with it, thank you for speedy dispatch.

Linda D. Whiston UK - 14 August 2014


Charming compact, exactly as described, excellent service, thank you

Maggie S.  Bath UK - 9 August 2014


Enchanting purple compact! And here I am, never a lover of the color purple, and I am spellbound by her COLOR and Condition! Amazing. Austrian pieces have always been superb and this one is as well. I am excited that she's mine and has her forever home with me.

Sally M. Covington USA - 5 August 2014


good vintage condition very well packaged bargain!

Geoff H. Malpas UK - 3 August 2014


The vintage powder box arrived in great time and it was in perfect condition and the young lady that I gave it to for a gift was speechless. It is a unique and priceless gift

Connie V. Woodbridge Canada - July 29 2014


The Sunflower is considered the happiest of flowers with her warmth and brightness. She's also held as a symbol of loyalty and longevity. These are the reasons why, no doubt, this compact designer choose to create this compact as he did - like her. I feel sure that his loved one was the Sunflower of his life! Of course, the truth will never be known, but I will cherish the thought that it all happened just like that. She is so beautiful and special - seemingly one of a kind - and I'll always consider her a real treat to have in my collection. A Big thank you goes to Eleanor for finding and sharing her!

Sally M. Covington USA - 25 July 2014


Everything, the item is beautiful.

Jodie B. Market Drayton UK - 22 July 2014


Lovely compact and great service from the seller. Thank you.

Louise I. Staines UK - 15 July 2014


Very helpful seller, great service.

Louise I. Staines UK - 15 July 2014


Thank you so much for all your help with this. He absolutely loves it! You were so helpful through the whole process. Thank you so much for everything! I will be buying much more from you!! ;)

Lacey H. St Paul USA -15 July 2014


What a "find" for Eleanor! Very rare and very fun. The fun part is the lady's expression on her face. She exudes self confidence! She just doesn't really care WHAT you may think of her. LOVE THAT! Once again, Eleanor has given me a treasure.

Sally M. Covinton USA - 14 July 2014


WOW! What a great seller! Everything and more just as stated in the description. SHE follows through until the item is in your hands. I will be buying from her again and again.

Linda D. Lenoir city USA - 12 July 2014


Stratton has consistently designed beautiful compacts throughout the ages. This Stratnoid is a perfect example of the type of work that they are so famous for. It is considered a "foil" and by design, she almost has a 3D effect. In looking, you feel as if you could reach in and touch. I am lucky to have another but this one is even more beautiful. I thank Eleanor for the "find" and for sharing her with me! Eleanor you ARE the best!

Sally M. Covington USA - 9 July 2014


Delicious thoughts of summertime and Margaritas, such a crazy LIME! And a slimness in your hand of a modern day compact. She is truly unique. I am thrilled to have her as a treasure in my collection, and have, as always, Eleanor to thank!

Sally M. Covington USA - 8 July 2014


I fell in love instantly with this Cameo! But with so many already, I set my passion for her aside very sure that someone else will see and buy. But no one did. I am quite certain with all the compacts and purses to choose from, this adorable cameo just got overlooked. So lucky her, at a weak moment I just had to make her mine. So she sits beautifully on display for now, with a plan to wear her lovingly around my neck this winter with a beautiful sweater behind. Thank you Eleanor for finding her, and your willingness to part.

Sally M. Covington USA - 7 July 2014


The lid says Kissproof but I have named her Smooch! And a precious little Smooch of a compact she is! Tiny in shape with a perfect mirror and full of rouge. But the surprise is the bottom that has very interesting enamel and a sticker from her early beginning. I am very pleased. I find myself continuously surprised and shouldn't ever be, because Eleanor ALWAYS brings to me the BEST!!

Sally M. Covington USA - 30 June 2014


It really is beautiful. I have purchased this as a birthday present and I am really forcing myself to give it away!!

Sally F. Broadstairs UK - 27 June 2014


Every where to look is amazing engraving...top, bottom, sides - no place missed! Who ever thought that she could hold snuff was CRAZY. She was designed to hold diamond rings for sure. And she is a real Victorian piece...from the 1800's. Beautiful beyond belief and all mine! Thank you Eleanor for her, for everything!!!

Sally M. Covington USA - 25 June 2014


What an incredibly beautiful, sparkly, gold little angel! I am spellbound. She has tiny elephants and palm trees dancing around the lid, and inside a tiny latch to push the mirror back to expose another little compartment. Amazing 1926 design. Thank you again and again!!

Sally M. Covington USA - 25 June 2014


In your wildest imagination could you ever dream of something as beautiful as this? No never. She is breathtaking and awesome with every detail perfect...and best of all is that she's MINE! Thank you Eleanor for another glorious prize to cherish!

Sally M. Covington USA - 17 June 2014


Beautiful, dainty, packaged nicely and prompt delivery.

Francis H. Wymondham UK - 11 June 2014


Breathtakingly beautiful! Her engraving is top notch with an almost a 3D effect. She dazzled me from the very beginning but I just had to wait for her. Lucky for me, she was still there when I was ready. I have her proudly on display with a few of her friends bought earlier from Eleanor. Eleanor is a terrific seller that can't be matched!

Sally M. Covington USA - 3 June 2014


Love this compact, the fact sheet and pictures were a really thoughtful extra...thank you!!!

Louise I. Staines UK - 31 May 2014


This beautiful compact was under a cloud of mystery. I was drawn to her and just wanted to know more. Little by little she was unveiled, and when I finally saw who she was then I knew that she had to be mine. Once again Eleanor, you offered me a prize for my collection. Thank you! Sally

Sally M. Covington USA - 26 May 2014


I love this charm. It's stunning. The detail is admirable and the latch feature is insanely cool. The quality is great for a charm from the 60s or 70s- beautiful patina but not worn out. Eleanor is a terrific seller- she was kind enough to custom wrap this for me with a wonderful historic image, and included a lovely history snippet about charms. Arrived safely and timely. Highly recommend- shop with confidence.

Sonia Y. Edmonton Canada - 26 May 2014


A very rare, breathtaking color with double enamel! While she is so gorgeous that she can sit alone, I have chosen to team her with my onyx beauty. The two of them make a stunning display. Thank you Eleanor for what seems like an endless stream of thank yous. Sally

Sally M. Covington USA - 7 May 2014


REAL onyx and gems....ultra luxury for the privileged few. And here I am with her. Amazing. She sits among some extraordinary pieces but she has quickly become my favorite. Thank you Eleanor for finding her. But an even bigger thank you for parting with her. I don't know how you were able to sell. Sally

Sally M. Covington USA - 7 May 2014


WOW!! Triple Wow! So delicate and fragile in design, and the fairy is breathtaking. This is my most feminine compact and I will cherish her forever. Thank you!

Sally M. Covington USA - 6 May 2014


Fun little girl! I just had to have you since I have the very famous 666 compact. So pour your good luck and beautiful karma everywhere and be the good luck charm that you were designed to be! Thank you for this find, Eleanor!

Sally M. Covington USA - 6 May 2014


Outrageous! Incredibly classy! I adore the rose gold with the silver. Eleanor finds beautiful pieces that are always unique and lovely. Thank you for all that you do. Without you I just would not have a REAL collection, I just wouldn't. Again thank you!! Sally

Sally M. Covington USA - 6 May 2014


Beautiful! ELLIE, you are amazing!!!!! Thank you!

Tracey H. Spring USA - 5 May 2014


Good communication from the seller...compact arrived very quick in pretty packaging...great service.

Louise I. Staines UK - 4 May 2014


Pristine condition, lovely compact will return as a customer.

Masseyna O. Brooklyn USA - 28 April 2014


Always a pleasure to buy from this seller. She's so friendly and professional all at the same time. Love the unique compact powder box. The package was packed with love. :-) Thanks!!

Diana G. Cypress, Texas USA - 24 April 2014


Kigu is a magnificent compact designer. Their workmanship is superb and their design flawless. The lid on this one is very unique with almost a cracked glaze appearance. And the ship with the billowing sails from a long time ago. Awesome. Eleanor, I wish I knew how you find the stunning pieces you find. But I suppose that your secret will always remain your secret. I am the lucky one to have found you!

Sally M. Covington USA - 21 April 2014


I named her Spook! Crazy kick to have this piece....all 666 and half moons, then 4 full moons. What a kinky mind to make this compact and for whom?? Mystery Girl she is and I am the lucky one to have her. She even tested for very high grade Sterling but with no Hallmarks. Highly unusual for an English piece. More mystery. So when I have a dull, boring day all I need to do now is take a look at Spook! Already she has cast her spell on me.

Sally M. Covington USA - 21 April 2014


What a lovely Christmas C.C.McD. had in 1964. Someone who truly loved her gave her this breathtakingly beautiful French compact. With all the Hallmarks but no Makers Mark more than likely it was a custom piece made just for her. What an honor to have something like this to cherish as she did so long ago. Thank you again, Eleanor.

Sally M. Covington USA - 21 April 2014


Stunning item and impeccable service. My sister loved it. Thank you so much!

Stacey - 18 Apr, 2014


This is so adorable, excellent condition and now that I have my powder I use it all the time. I've gotten so many compliments and I've had women hold it and look at it for so long I was afraid I wouldn't get it back!

Savannah M. - 17 Apr, 2014


A very late review, but a perfect gift in (I am assured as I organised this from abroad) perfect condition. It has gone to a well loved home now. The seller could not have been more helpful answering my questions, ahead of purchase and I found the customer focused interaction second to none. Everything was as discussed. Thoroughly recommend this seller.

Michelle - 15 Apr, 2014


Belais, only Belais can create such a beautifully romantic compact. The design is amazing with a lady tossing a rose to her lover below, and every detail is perfect. This is a high quality luxury compact that I am honored to have. And the thanks goes to Eleanor. Buy with confidence.

Sally M. - 14 Apr, 2014


Exquisite engraving all over front and back. I love the swerve that was made into her back so that she fits beautifully in your hand. Every detail is PERFECT and the engraving I am told is what is called bright cut. It's made in a way that the light reflects to make it sparkle. I am thrilled to have something so beautiful. Thank you.

Sally M. - 11 Apr, 2014


Very petite, very pretty in my favorite color. Forever feminine with all over beautiful enamel that has been lovingly cared for all these years. She is a perfect addition to my collection. I will treasure her.

Sally M. - 11 Apr, 2014


FEAR NAUGHT inscribed on this beautiful compact. Incredible words for the brave men who fought for us. This is an exquisite military compact. One that will continue to be cherished. Thank you, Eleanor.

Sally M. - 11 Apr, 2014


Beautiful and exactly as described. Delivery was also incredibly speedy. Thank you!

Eliie - 07 Apr, 2014


Lovely! Excellent condition, shipped promptly. I have bought several items from this store and am always pleased with the merchandise, price and service. I recommend it!

Jenny - 06 Apr, 2014


Miss Muffin!! Another treasure for me! I understand that The Muffin was only made for a short period so finding them is tough. And this one is so perfect that I feel certain that some lady found her to be so perfect that she only used her on special occasions, I am sure. I am so happy to have her with me! Sally

Sally M. - 4 Apr, 2014


This is a highly collectable, exquisite military piece for my collection! A beautiful much coveted RAF with beautiful enamel and perfect EVERYTHING! Whoever the lucky lady was, I feel certain that this was a treasure for her. I understand that only high ranking officers were able to secure these for their loved ones, so I am sure that it was valued like it should have been. Eleanor, I don't know how you find these gorgeous "hard to find compacts", but somehow you always do. Thank you!! Sally

Sally M. - 4 Apr, 2014


WOW!! My first REX. What a FUN compact!! As soon as I saw her I knew that I had to have her. I think I didn't even have to ask any questions, all I had to do is buy before someone snatched her away from me. And I am so glad I did! She has a mirror on the backside! Not that I would EVER put her in my purse, but If I did, I wouldn't have to open her up to use a mirror, it's just there! Great design and wonderful addition to my collection! You did it AGAIN Eleanor! Another great "find" for me! Sally

Sally M. - 4 Apr, 2014


Superb!!! STUNNING!! Of all my compacts she and my Mappin & Webb tie for first place. She looks totally unused. The lucky lady who received this must have tucked her away to keep her safe all these years. And because it is a LEFT HANDED piece, it would have to be a one of a kind, commissioned piece. I feel honored to have her. And as always, it was Eleanor who brought her to me! Thank you Eleanor for all of your hard work. I am your devoted fan!! Sally

Sally M. - 3 Apr, 2014


This is a very rare Petite Boudoir because she is silver plated! Not many were made and the few that were so many never survived. I feel honored to have her in my collection. And she has two mirrors! One is exactly where you'd expect a mirror, the other is right inside the bottom - where you would least expect one! Thank you for offering her for sale, Eleanor. Sally

Sally M. - 31 March, 2014


This is a PERFECT compact for me! On the surface she seems pretty and a little subdued, then when you open her up - WHAM! - the REAL compact is revealed! She has an upside down mirror inside! How VERY COOL and COMPLETELY unexpected! Thank you, Eleanor. The unexpected from you is expected!! Sally

Sally M. - 31 March, 2014


What a great & rare compact to find! It thrilled me. Reminded me of my teenage beauty queen days! Thanks!

Lazypro - 24 Mar, 2014


Great compact that reminds me of when I lived in Pasadena, a very happy time. Thanks so much.

Lazypro - 24 Mar, 2014


This is such an amazingly beautiful compact!!! I adore it. Love the size & the mask on it. Thanks.

Lazypro - 24 Mar, 2014


What a surprise!! I didn't expect such perfection. I didn't expect such beauty. All I knew was that I liked her and she was highly collectable. But not all this! Thank you Eleanor for sharing your knowledge and encouraging me to buy her. Sally

Sally M. - 24 Mar, 2014


Another beautiful collector's compact from Eleanor! Sally

Sally M. - 24 Mar, 2014


Totally AWESOME in every way!!!! Eleanor is THE PERFECT SELLER and FRIEND!!! I will always buy from her - my collection is incredible because of her!! And this beauty is PERFECT in every detail. I can't stop looking at her. She looks to have been treasured all her life! Lucky girl! Sally

Sally M. - 22 Mar, 2014


Karess, when I saw you I just HAD to have you. You are so gorgeous with all your artwork, all your engraving and so petite. I just LOVE that little inner lid that is completely engraved that opens to your mirror and 2 compartments. You even left me some rouge, how sweet. And that TINY outside latch. What a delicate touch. Wow, once again Eleanor, you gave me a lovely gift.

Sally M. - 19 Mar, 2014


My first Foster & Bailey.....a rare 1920's AMAZING piece. I have only heard about these until now, and the enamel is 100% PERFECT just as you said. I have an outrageous collection all because of you, Eleanor. Thank you. Sally

Sally M. - 19 Mar, 2014


SOooooooooo BEAUTIFUL, my QUEEN! And very rare. Exquisite in every detail. I am honored to have something like this in my collection. Thank you so much Eleanor for everything. I am a devoted fan. Sally

Sally M. - 19 Mar, 2014


Nadia, Nadia, Nadia oh how I love you. Breathtakingly beautiful. When you look at her you can feel her grace. It is little wonder that she is so sought after. I feel blessed to have her. Thank you Eleanor for making her available and inviting me to buy with your detailed description. She's PERFECT! Sally

Sally M. - 18 Mar, 2014


I kept looking at her and looking at her. I wasn't sure what was drawing me to her. When she arrived I finally knew. She was beautifully made and in perfect condition. A must have for a new collector. Thank you Eleanor! Sally

Sally M. - 18 Mar, 2014


This one is PRECIOUS! All detailed out with a perfect mirror and the top, sides and back completely carved. Thank you for the offering. I love her. Sally

Sally M. - 18 Mar, 2014


This is my sleeper. I just wasn't sure. The photos didn't make her look special and I buy special. But Eleanor said that the photos just didn't do her justice and she used the word stunning. Having said that in her description, and with the trust I have in Eleanor, I went ahead and bought. Wow am I glad that I did. Stunning is the PERFECT word for her. I couldn't be happier! Thank you, Eleanor. Sally

Sally M. - 18 Mar, 2014


Exquisite in every detail! The Kigu craftsmen are true artists and that talent is all reflected in this beautiful case. As always, Eleanor has chosen the perfect new piece for my gorgeous collection. I couldn't be more pleased! Sally

Sally M. - 18 Mar, 2014


I'm really delighted with my compact. The packaging and information that came along with it was a real bonus. Will definitely look to purchase from this seller again. Delivery was also super quick.

Sally M. - 18 Mar, 2014


Gorgeous item ! Swift service, beautifully packed. A superb seller.

Annette D. - 05 Mar, 2014


All I can say is wow! This was the best shopping experience I ever had. The Kigu compact I purchased is incredibly beautiful and it was an absolute pleasure working with Eleanor. She is the most thoughtful vendor I have ever had the opportunity to work with. Love it, love it, love it. Thank you!

Melissa - 03 Mar, 2014


Leda, my beautiful Leda. My perfect and very rare Leda. I never knew about her. Eleanor shared her story with me. When she got to the part that only one other was ever found and that it was so badly damaged and couldn't be saved, I knew that I HAD to make her mine! She has breathtaking color, and I am captured by the strength that she shows. Once again, Eleanor has helped me create a collection that will one day be envied.

Sally M. - 03 Mar, 2014


So fitting that I bought her on Valentine's Day. A romantic couple engraved on a beautiful compact that is almost a locket. While she can be worn around the neck, I suspect that she'll be almost always on display with my other beauties. A true treasure and another example of Eleanor taking care of me. THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN!!

Sally M. - 28 February, 2014


Incredibly beautiful, so perfect in every detail. I am now a KIGU LOVER!!! I am told that this compact is very rare so I feel honored to be her new Mum. And she plays Spring Song beautifully! Thank you Eleanor for once again giving me an opportunity to have the best.

Sally M. - 27 February, 2014


Wonderful Art Deco in excellent condition! Smooth purchase, prompt shipping. I recommend this seller!

Jenny - 26 Feb, 2014


My breathtaking "Musica"! I would have LOVED her no matter what (how could I not?) but she will ALWAYS be extremely special to me because of our first experience together. In my inexperience with her I couldn't find the latch to turn her on and I thought - in a panic - that in my first hours I had somehow broken her. Poor Eleanor once again had to dive in to teach me. What am I going to do if she jumps ship and sails to California to be an artist?? I will have to find a way keep her here in the U.K. doing what I need her to do.....watch out over me - teach me all that she knows - make me a compact expert! Thank you for being patient, Eleanor!

Sally M. - 20 Feb, 2014


I am a NEW COLLECTOR and poor Eleanor has been doing her best to school me on all of this. And this Miref was one of her valuable lessons. I didn't know, never could have imagined the beautiful design in the creation of this compact. And the back is clear glass!!! I wonder how many have been damaged over the years because she is so fragile. But with the limited production and possible damage it just makes my beauty even more valuable. I feel that it is an honor to have something so rare and in perfect condition. Thank you Eleanor for making this happen for me!!

Sally M. - 20 Feb, 2014


Fabulous! Excellent condition, fast shipping! I have bought several compacts from this seller and I'm always delighted with the compact and the service!

Jenny - 18 Feb, 2014


The service I received from this seller was outstanding! Great communication, beautiful product and extra fast delivery. Very recommended.

rafacanto - 15 Feb, 2014


This is the most beautiful, breathtaking and totally perfect vintage item I have EVER seen and it's MINE!! Poor Eleanor had to field countless questions and comments for what seemed like forever (it really wasn't that long) and I spent every day drooling over her trying to figure out how I was going to get her. While for me she was expensive, she is worth EVERY penny I paid. I could not be any happier with her! And Eleanor is a superb seller. She is a wealth of knowledge and takes the time to print out a fact sheet with every purchase so that you have a history to share. I am a very happy customer who will look to Vintage and Antiques12 whenever I wish to buy. Sally

Sally M. - 13 Feb, 2014


OMG What a fabulous find and where else but at Vintage and Antiques 12! Eleanor has the BEST OF THE BEST and this beauty tops the list of GREATS!! Thank you for having her there for me to buy. I love her!!!! THANK YOU!!!

Sally M. - 10 Feb, 2014


Lovely compact, thank you! Arrived quickly and safely and is beautifully presented in a gift box with historical information.

redrobinvintage - 06 Feb, 2014

I bought several vintage compact mirrors from Eleanor, to use as gifts for my bridesmaids. They came in time, and were a huge hit. Everyone loved them. Eleanor was very attentive through the whole transaction and followed up a couple of times to make sure I recieved them in time for my wedding. They were all in great shape when they came, and she had clearly put tons of effort into making sure each one was perfectly wrapped and included hand written notes about each one. I highly recommend doing business with this shop!
