1800s French Gold Ormolu Portrait Compact With Amethysts Pearls And Enamel
Here is a beatiful late 1800's antique French gold ormolu powder and rouge portrait and jewel compact in near mint condition.
It has two beautiful hand painted signed portraits that are under glass. It also features beautiful enameling detail in red and lilac enamel, as well as being adorned with prong set pearls and amethyst stones. One side opens to a clear beveled glass mirror that is framed, as well as having two compartments; one for powder and the other for rouge. Each compartment has an unused handmade silk powder puff.
