A wonderful unused 1950s oriental damascene compact mirror and lipstick set.
This splendid vintage vanity set is in superb condition. Both the compact lid and whole lipstick case surround are decorated with a 24 karat gold and silver Damascene landscape and so this would be an ideal golden / silver wedding anniversary gift for her. The historical fact sheet we include with this purchase documents the elaborate process of creating a Damascene collectible using 24 karat gold and sterling silver. Damascene is considered a symbol of good fortune. The decorations are finely crafted oriental scenes which depict the Ichinomiya, or supreme Shinto shrine of Suruga Province, Mount Fuji can be seen in the background. All clasps and hinges work perfectly. The brass was coated at the point of manufacture with a layer of transparent enamel so these items will retain their beauty and they will not require any cleaning. The inner lid of the compact is satinized. The mirror gives a good clear reflection. The base of the compact has a subtle & fine spiral design and could be engraved, if desired. The original pale blue felt pouch, pink silk and fabric puff and sifter are present.
This compact is suitable for use with loose face powder or as a handbag mirror.
The original presentation case is made from wood clad in a blue-grey material. The compact and lipstick holder sit in custom made recesses which are covered in cream fabric. This Japanese maker knew that the sets would be so appealing that the owners would like to have them on display and so the case is hinged in such a way that the base can be raised to form a display stand.
