In the 1930s Albert FLAMAND founded the company Flamand Manufacturer. Flamand invented a plating process "Fladium". Fladium is a metal with a protective oxide layer. The production involves an electrolytic process in which the metal forms the anode. The result of this process is a high quality finish which will not tarnish or need to be cleaned. As a result this bracelet compact has a lustrous rich golden copper appearance which remains in superb condition. The firm became noted for this process and also for the production of a series of bracelet compacts which are hard to find. The theme of these accessories was well known artists, such as Josephine Baker, French opera star Claudine Cereda & Lucienne Boyer. The films / productions in which these artists starred are featured on the original presentation boxes.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a novelty compact made by the legendary Flamand Company. This bracelet compact comes in the original presentation box promoting the famous artist Claudine Cereda for her role in " Exciting Paris ". The lid of the presentation box is decorated with images of famous Parisian landmarks - the Eiffel Tower, Casino de Paris & the Moulin Rouge. Around the edges of the lid are durable waxed paper panels. The box opens to show the interior which has a signed photograph of Claudine Cereda. Above this printed on a panel " EXCITING . PARIS " & the signature of Claudine Cereda. The interior base has a raised area to hold the bracelet in place.
The bracelet is very beautiful and highly collectible. The finish is superb gleaming gold with a copper hue. The bracelet has three star shapes cut out on each side. A twisted rope effect around the lid and a pale yellow Bakelite top set with seven golden stars. The Bakelite top opens to reveal a small mirror which gives a good reflection. The original card edged sifter is present and it is in excellent condition. The underside of the bracelet is signed " Claudine Céréda " and also bears the trademark
" A FLAMMAND FLADIUM DEPOSE ". This accessory is proof indeed that Albert Flammand's invention provides a durable finish. This novelty compact is in super condition and will never need to be cleaned or lose its lustrous sheen. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. The mirror has slight silver loss around the edges which in no way detracts from the appeal of this extremely rare vanity.
This rare novelty compact 6.1 cm wide x 4.3 high and weighs 57.8 grams.
