The most gorgeous and famous Art Nouveau 1925 Djer Kiss "Kissing Fairies" compact rouge with the original rouge and puffs. Click here to see more vintage compact mirrors.
A beautiful silver plated compact which is very well made and in excellent condition. The silver plating & the interior case are super. This case signaled the end of the Rowland-Smith Fairy themed vanities for the maker. Djer Kiss (pronounced "dear kiss") epitomizes the florid Art Nouveau style. This design had a fairly short production run as the makers decided to manufacture compacts in the more 'modern' and linear style of Art Deco. This antique vanity really needs no introduction and it remains one of the most iconic powder compacts. The repoussage image of two fairies kissing surrounded by Art Nouveau flowers, all framed by a circular band from which radians emerge is delightful. The area just above the thumb catch is signed "Djer Kiss". The lid opens easily to reveal the powder well. The mirror has some age related haze. This mirror opens on a hinge to reveal another mirror for the application of rouge. This mirror gives a very good reflection. The mirror for the rouge compartment is a magnifying mirror & the mirror for the face powder compartment is a standard mirror. All clasps and hinges work perfectly. Such an enchanting piece of compact history! The base is decorated with radians which echo the design of the lid. In the middle a circular band and a hammered finish. This compact measures 5 cm x 5.2 cm and weighs 59 grams.
