Item of The Week - Art Deco Italian Silver Hand Mirror Compact

Around about this time every year (or earlier if you’re organised!) we contemplate what to buy our loved ones for Christmas. Do we play it safe with traditional gifts or do we go that extra mile and set out to impress with a unique, slightly more thoughtful gift? Well if you so happen to choose the latter, we may just be able to help.

This weeks ‘Item of The Week’ would make the most wonderful gift for the special lady in your life. It comes in the form of this Art Deco Italian Silver Novelty Hand Mirror. But that’s not all!  This fabulous mirror also acts as a lipstick holder and the mirror opens to reveal a powder compartment with another mirror inside. I make that a 3-in-1 gift! So not only can you check out your appearance, but you can also have your lipstick & blusher/compact powder all in one place and easily to hand.

Imagine her excitement on Christmas morning when she opens her gift and is presented with this thoughtful, almost 100-year-old beauty must-have. And you won’t have to worry about anyone else buying an identical gift, as this is a little more unique that your average High Street product. It does make you wonder how many reflections have been admired through this mirror before now.

Dating between 1920 - 1930, this pretty, Silver Mirror displays a bevelled edge and the most beautiful and detailed engravings over its entirety and has a rich green cabochon onyx stone on the handle which acts as a push button to release the lipstick holder.  It is small enough to fit in a handbag but not so small that it’s not fit for purpose. It is in very good condition with a little foxing to the mirrors  

This practical & highly attractive item is being sold by The Fancy Fox for £275
