This is a charming fully hallmarked sterling silver novelty fob compact in excellent condition. The lid has an engine turned design of horizontal lines with two banded borders engraved to look like lace. The oblong cartouche is engraved with the initials M V W. The catch is quite unusual - a triangular clip folds on to the silver knob. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. The interior of the compact is not at all common to see - the powder well wall forms a seal with the mirror bezel & felt which surrounds the bezel too. The mirror gives a good & clear reflection. Around the outer edge of the lid is a bead like border of sterling silver in relief. The compact is hallmarked 'STERLING R B (with a sword running through it) Co 3122'. The maker is R. Blackington The base is smooth silver.
This solid silver compact measures 6.5 cm & weighs 2.4 grams.
