Antique Italian Silver Compact Mirror Alfredo Ridi 1950s


A charming mid-century antique Italian 800 silver compact mirror crafted by Alfredo Ridi. The lid and base are embellished with ornate bright-cut engravings. Acanthus leaves and floral motifs form a delightful composition. The acanthus leaf has symbolized immortality, rebirth, longevity and healing since ancient times. This Florence assayed vanity is ideal for use as a handbag mirror or cherished collectible. The catch and hinge work perfectly. The mirror gives an accurate and clear reflection. Around the edges of the mirror there is some haze which does not detract from the appeal of this accessory. An immaculate velvet pouch is included. Measures 7.3 cm x 7 cm. Weighs 72.7 grams.
