More high quality hallmarked silver compacts.

This delightful piece is fashioned to resemble a clam-shell. Such a highly collectible vanity in super condition! The original sifter and puff are present and so this fully hallmarked silver compact can be used with all loose foundation. The lid and base are decorated with splendid bright-cut engraving. Three forget-me-not flowers grace the lid. Florid acanthus leaves emanate from the forget-me-nots. Such romantic imagery! Acanthus leaves represent everlasting life. The base is just as ornate as the lid - see image three. The bevelled mirror gives a good and accurate reflection. Full sets of hallmarks are easy to read. The clasps and hinges work perfectly. Image eight shows the maker's mark 210 FI. Measures 9 cm wide. Weighs 63.3 grams. An immaculate black velvet pouch is included.
