**SALE** GILT SILVER ENAMEL COMPACT PAINTING SCENE LARGE 1920s This is absolutely the best gilt silver and enamel compact from the 1920s I have ever seen. The workmanship is exquisite. The enamelling is likened to that of a master painter. There is so much going on, the colors and detail are magnificent. The photos do not do this piece justice. The enamelling is crisp,not blurry whatsoever. It was hard to carry the crispness of the enamelling over from the camera I was using (pixels?).The shape of the compact itself is unique in a shell or scalloped shape. The hinge works perfectly. The compact opens and closes easily and securely. There is etching all over this piece. The inside is gilt. There is a beautiful bevelled mirror matching the shape of the compact inside in pristine condition. There is also a pink screen with a velvet tab and border. This has never been used,just saved like a treasure. There are 2 marks on the inside. One is 800(for the silver content). The other mark I have taken a photo of but cannot make out what it is exactly. I have read that the mark could point to Italy,France or Austria. This whole compact is in perfect condition. No repairs or damage whatsoever. Measures 3 1/2 inches x 3 1/2 inches x 3/8 inch height. The enamelling is pleasing scene of a woman and her lover feeding her while by the river and a black and white dot at their feet. There are also sheep laying and grazing around. A young boy wearing a hat. Some kind of hand coming out of what looks like hay next to him?? An old tree with a woman holding a child in it while water is gushing into a vat. The whole scene looks like a landscape and portrait painting with a touch of surrealism thrown in. The blue enamelling on the outside of the main enamelling is touched here and there with tiny little flowers. This so reminds me of a certain painting,but I cannot place it. I have not polished this piece. It has a beautiful pattinae on the outside. Truly this looks like it is one of a kind. A true work of art. Shipping is $10.50 for in the US, priority,insured,delivery confirmation. More photos are available upon request. You will not be sorry!
