A delightful powder bowl made for Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Company. This company commissioned A.S.Brown & Co. to make vanities as gifts for their first class lady passengers. The Peninsula & Oriental Steam Navigation Company ( P&O) originally operated on the Iberian Peninsula. In 1844 P&O became the first company in the world to offer passenger cruises. The Company became very powerful, bought out other operators & built faster & more luxurious vessels that traveled to the most exotic locations. The powder bowl bears the P & O coat of arms and the inscription - " Quis nos separabit " ( who will separate us.) The enchanting coat of arms is decorated with a lion, an elephant, a dragon & a kangaroo which represented the Company's considerable interests in Britain, India, China & Australia.

The whole item is in very good condition. The lid & base have complex engine turned designs. The sides have a granulated / textured finish & the whole item is the deepest richest gold. The mirror is excellent & the mirror bezel is inscribed 'MADE IN ENGLAND'. The original sifter & puff are in place & they are immaculate. The card from the The Peninsula & Oriental Steam Navigation Company reads 'QUIS NOS SEPARABIT With the Compliments of the Chairman and Managing Directors of the P. & O. S. N. Company'. The original box comes with this powder bowl and all the original accessories.

This vintage powder bowl measures almost 8 cm wide X 4 cm high & weighs 140.4 grams.
