An exceptionally pretty makeup compact crafted by Henry Clifford Davis in 1955. The grape vine and grapes engraved on the lid are not a design that we have seen before. This is highly likely to be a one of a kind piece. The original puff and sifter are in place and so this mid-century compact can be used with loose face powder or as a handbag mirror. The compact is in excellent condition. The mirror gives a good and accurate reflection. An immaculate black velvet pouch is included. The catch & hinge work perfectly. Measures almost 2 1/2" and weighs 60.3 grams.
Rare Antique Gifts has clarified that the Pretty Solid Silver Makeup Compact 1955 (LA199058) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1955
