This vintage powder compact is suitable for use as a handbag mirror.
This is an eye-catching fully hallmarked sterling silver powder compact made by R Davis & Co & assayed at Birmingham in 1946. As far as I am aware this is the only maker who made sterling silver powder compacts in this style. The lid & base have wonderful guilloche engraving. The mirror is excellent & gives a perfect reflection. The compact is in excellent condition - no dings or damage. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. Beautiful & stylish this was originally gifted to a lady with the initials of B R C which are now part of the compacts provenance as the lid is engraved thus.
This solid silver compact measures 10 cm & it weighs 83.9 grams.
