$450.00

Exquisite rouge compact made by Ripley & Gowen (R & G CO) and marked LaMode. It is sterling silver and is so marked on the back. It is guilloche enamel.

The top is decorated with elegant roses in shades of pink and tiny blue flowers surrounded by green leaves. The background of this art work is white. The compact measures 2 1/4" x 2 1/4". The frame of the top is handsomely decorated with black enamel. This design is also on the back of the piece. There are no scratches to the enamel or the glass on the top of the compact.

The sides are also decorated elaborately.

The chain from which the compact hangs has a tiny enamel piece about half way between the finger ring and the compact. I have tried to capture this in a photo. There is a lovely delicate design in this tiny enamel piece (measures 7/16").

The back shows some wear. The back is appears to be engraved with a circle and then a bow with two branches with leaves inside.

Opening the piece, the hinge is in good condition and the clasp is perfect. The mirror shows very little aging. The original rouge applicator is inside. There is a small knob inside that moves a metal piece to expose an plain opening, a sifting opening and a closed setting.

This piece belonged to the estate of a friend and I know it dates back to the 1930's. Perhaps it's older. It is an exquisite piece with very little wear.
