This American company made some truly stunning compacts, including the Golden Gesture hand-shaped compacts. Lynell Schwartz's 'Vintage Compacts & Beauty Accessories' shows many superb examples.
|This is a wonderful set which I haven't seen before. It comprises a basketweave evening bag with a snake-chain handle and a mirror beneath the flap. The matching compact has a purse-type clasp and a rhinestone and leaf decoration. The bag measures approx. 6" by 4" and the compact 2.5" square. It is complete with a silk case for the compact, a soft felt case for the bag and the original box. It has never been used. What a shame.|
|A very classy compact in a basket-weave pattern with central swirls set with red stones which are also set into the purse-type clasp. The compact is signed on the inner lid and contains its original puff. It is just over 3" square and is in super condition.|
|An elegant compact with applied swirls dotted with red and white stones. Inner door, bevelled mirror, no sifter or puff. In very good condition.|
|This lovely compact is designed as a gift box, in a glossy goldtone with brushed gift tag and raised cord tied in a bow. It is complete with puff and the original card and is in very good condition, with just a small loss of lacquer beneath the bow. It was advertised in 1947.|
|A lovely oval case with a white enamelled background and raised design of birds on a grape vine in gold and copper. Some slight loss on right-hand side but very pretty nevertheless with stitched sifter and a lovely thick puff.|
|This design is called 'Persian Legend' and, I believe, is part of a set of similar designs. This lovely case has a design of birds and animals over a goldtone base and the design is on both sides.|
|Another lovely gift, this is known as 'Fruit Salad'. A creamy-white enamel case with central stones in pink and turquoise and in superb condition.|
