This solid silver powder compact is suitable for loose face powder. A rare opportunity to acquire a sterling silver RAF vanity made by Adie Brothers Ltd in the most superb condition.
This is a beautiful sterling silver guilloche enamel powder compact bearing the RAF ensign.
This antique compact mirror is fully hallmarked Birmingham Assay Office 1938. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. The enamel is excellent - the most gorgeous translucent azure blue. There is no enamel loss or fading. The sterling silver RAF emblem still with the red & green enamel - glorious and without any losses. The blue enamel lid has the most delightful Art Deco design. Normally the RAF ensign is a badge set atop the guilloche and secured by rivets. The ensign adorning this compact is applied with much more skill than the application of a badge. The silver wings, crown and whole ensign are engraved onto the lid in the most extraordinarily fine detail not set atop. The lid lifts to reveal a mirror which shows a perfect reflection. The original pouch and sifter are present. The base has an engine turned design. The whole compact is in super condition. It is difficult to find guilloche enamel RAF compacts in this condition. Measures almost 7 cm & weighs 62.8 grams.
