Ornate Hallmarked Vintage Italian Silver Luxury Handbag Mirror 1940s

A rare & splendid fully hallmarked silver compact mirror which was crafted in the early 1940s by Orlandini Corrado. The compact is a first rate example of Italian bright-cut engraving. This wonderful accessory was assayed* (tested for silver purity*) in Firenze (Florence). 
Acanthus leaves have been fashioned to form the stand of an ornate urn. The whole of the outer case is embellished with florid acanthus leaves and forget-me-not flowers. Such romantic imagery!

Acanthus leaves symbolise everlasting life.

Forget-me-not flowers represent deep love and respect.

Breathtakingly beautiful! 

The compact is hallmarked in multiple places. These marks include the maker's mark of 24 FI which is seen just above the silver purity mark of 800. The mirror gives a good and accurate reflection. The catch and hinge work perfectly. An immaculate velvet pouch is included.

A slender and elegant compact which is ideal for use as a luxury handbag mirror or cherished display collectible. Measures 3 inches diameter. Weighs 66.8 grams.

Excellent condition!
