Art Nouveau compact mirrors Djer Kiss powder compacts 1925
This enchanting silver plated compact was made in 1925.
It is the epitome of Art Nouveau in the shape of a compact duo!
This beautifully made powder compact & rouge is in excellent condition.
The lid design on this model signaled the end of the Rowland-Smith Fairy themed compact case for Djer Kiss (pronounced "dear kiss") who were moving from Art Nouveau to the more en vogue Art Deco. It is a highly collectible antique compact rouge. The romantic nature of the antique vanity ensures it is in great demand.
Superbly well made as you can feel by its weight - an exquisite antique compact!
The famous sight of the lid hardly needs any introduction - two fairies kissing surrounded
by gorgeous Art Nouveau flowers. The area just above the thumb catch is signed
"Djer Kiss". The compact has two mirrors. The first opens on a hinge to reveal another mirror for the application of rouge. The mirror for the rouge compartment is a magnifying mirror & the mirror for the face powder compartment is a standard mirror. The standard mirror has some age related haze. However, the rouge mirror is excellent and gives a very good reflection.
The base is just as appealing having a hammered central circular design, surrounded by radians, giving the appearance resembling a sunflower.
This antique Djer Kiss compact measures 2" X 2" & weighs 54.1 grams.
