Fanchon compact antique rouge 1922
Rare antique rouges
A rare 1922 Fachon compact rouge with the original rouge powder plate - vibrant pink & plenty of it left too. We are delighted to have this rare vanity in our shop. It is shown on the 1922 advertisement the company placed in The Ladies Home Journal & we have to agree that having a 'school girl complexion' is better than jewels!
This sweet little compact rouge shows a stamped impression of a daisy form flower, from which two petals have fallen & the words 'Fachon rouge'. The whole case has acquired a glorious deep golden patina over the last 93 years & it is in remarkably good condition, considering its great age. The interior is delightful - gilded & very pretty. The hinge & mirror bezel are gilded too. The mirror is excellent & gives a very good reflection. The original plate containing most of the rouge is in place - a very attractive pink. You can imagine the bold colours that the flappers used with confidence. The base has a typical Art Deco engine turned design of vertical lines set within a border. All clasps & hinges work perfectly.
This rare antique flapper rouge measures 4 cm & weighs 25.1 grams.
