Rare TERRI SPANISH DANCING COUPLE authentic Art Deco compact mirror
Deco compacts rare Bakelite compacts 1930s powder compacts antique something blue gifts
A wonderful Art Deco compact mirror with the famous Spanish dancing couple on the lid. We rarely find these powder compacts and this one is unused, which is a bonus. This very stylish compact was made in 1931 and so it is an authentic Art Deco Bakelite compact mirror. The lid is navy blue and dark blue Bakelite with the delightful Terri logo and fittings in gleaming chrome. The signature 'TERRI' just near the thumb catch. The Bakelite and chrome all look as though this compact has spent the last eighty five years sat in a cabinet. On lifting the lid the Bakelite powder well is visible, unused with 'AB - 2' stamped on to it. A metal double mirror on a hinge gives a good reflection for a metal mirror. The mirror swings open to reveal the shiny chrome with the Terri logo in reverse and the chrome fittings for the rouge. All clasps and hinges work perfectly. The base is dark blue Bakelite and just as pleasing to look at as the rest of this famous vanity. The Bakelite and chrome are uniform colours and there are no light patches or discolouration at all.
This model is the double case for loose powder and the lid is fitted with a bezel to hold rouge too. Typically in this era the rouge compartment holds approximately half of the amount that the face powder compartment does.
