A unique high quality powder bowl in the original presentation box, commissioned by Mappin & Webb in 1922. This superb antique powder compact is signed "MAPPIN & WEBB LTD". It is fully hallmarked "G W L & CO ( G W Lewis & Co.), anchor (assayed at Birmingham) lion passant (sterling silver) date year X (1922)". The whole compact is in excellent condition. The beautiful lid has the most gorgeous and subtle cream guilloche enamel which is without losses or fading. The enamel is an even colour. Set top, an impressive lapis lazuli cabochon which is more breathtaking than I have managed to capture with my camera. The exterior and the interior are vermeil.
The compact is without damage. All clasps and hinges work perfectly. The mirror is framed by a gilded bezel and it gives a perfect reflection. The beautiful down puff pristine and unused has a celluloid ring attached to a blue silk backing. The base is signed and fully hallmarked. The ancient crimson presentation case is in remarkably good condition. The lid bears the royal coat of arms and reads as follows "MAPPIN & WEBB LTD. (MAPPIN BROS INCORPORATED) Diamond Merchants & Art Jewellers, LONDON, W." An ancient piece of tissue paper still inside the case. Measures almost 5 cm diameter. Weighs 51.3 grams.
