This is such a wonderful French antique compact. Cupid stands in a gorgeous wood having just fired the arrow. Such a charming & romantic gift this would make! We have made no attempt to clean the antique vanity - so glorious is the deep dark patina it has acquired over the last 100 years. It is very gorgeous and a joy to hold. The lid is finely engraved with great attention to detail. The sides & base are decorated with a guilloche pattern. The base is signed 'Artes'. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. The mirror gives a good reflection - lots of very subtle ages spots that just add to charm of this beauty.
Rare Antique Gifts has clarified that the Antique French Powder Bowl Cupid (LA427626) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1900s
