Fantastic and scarce TIFFANY & CO sterling silver and purple/ lavender Guilloche Enamel goldwashed box, compact or purse mirror or possibly pill box. Marked on the outside edge, under the hinge Tiffany & Co. Lovely item with high quality beveled mirror inside of this sterling silver compact with the Art Deco style decorated guilloche lid.
Measures 2.75 in diameter from hinge to hinge by about 1/2 inch tall. Nice substantial weight to it coming it at 80 grams, very solid and sturdy. Snaps open and closed securely. Age appropriate surface wear from use and polish over the years.The purple guilloche and mirror are in great condition and it has a fantastic texture on the back as well. There is some enamel loss to the white outline around the purple area as pointed out / seen in photos. Some additional discoloration and wear inside the non-mirrored side of the box. Perhaps it had a metal insert of makeup in it at one time that rubbed a significant amount of scratches in the inside, wearing off the gold wash. There is also a discoloration or tarnish streak in the textured area of the back that I couldnt get clean with a light hand polish. Please see photos closely as it is obviously not a mint condition item. I dearly love, collect, use and sell antique sterling silver housewares and flatware items seeking out unique and rare pieces to share with you!
