Rare Kirby Beard & Co Compact Art Deco Powder Compacts


We have run out of stock for this item.

An extremely rare Art Deco compact made in Paris bearing the KIRBY BEARD & CO signature - one of the most prestigious makers in the world. More silver compacts.

The lid has an engine turned design in the form of tiny diamond shapes with three gold plated panels which make for such a striking Art Deco vanity. Such a bonus that the original protective carry case is included as they are very rare to find.  All clasps & hinges work perfectly. The sifter is in place too and so this rare French ultra vanity can be used with loose face powder or as a handbag mirror. The base matches the lid - engine turned & smooth silver panels. Push the thumb catch & the spring loaded catch ensures the case glides open to reveal a bevelled mirror with a hallmarked sterling silver bezel. The case is hallmarked sterling silver on the mirror bezel & on the powder well too. The mirror gives a very good reflection - it has a quite few age related marks but so much better that it is authentic than a replacement, especially if you happen to be a collector. The compact has signs of use throughout. Measures 8 cm X 8 cm & weighs 171.3 grams.
