This exquisite ladies' compact embodies the essence of Art Deco artistry. Exhibiting a highly stylized Oriental motif, this solid gold case, which would have contained pressed powder and a puff for quick touch-ups, is adorned with skillful enameling centered by an intricately carved, diamond-studded jade basket ornament. The original mirror makes this case a must for an elegant night out. The Art Deco style of the 1920s and 1930s was a conscious effort to simplify the elaborate Art Nouveau, reflecting the machine-age ideals of speed and glamour. Sleek, streamlined forms connote the elegance and sophistication of this new found casual lifestyle. Small personal items like this compact reflected this attitude, and were made of the most luxurious materials, such as gold, diamonds and rare stones. To find these items in such impeccable condition is exceptionally rare.
