Bold enamel designs distinguish this Art Deco box by the renowned Cartier. Crafted of 18K gold, this sumptuous rectangular box would have been used as a compact, with two compartments for a tube of lipstick and pressed powder. A beveled mirror set into the lid makes touch-ups discreet and simple, and the stylized Oriental latch, set with delicate coral and bezel-set diamonds, slides in and out to keep the contents secure. Striking and sublimely elegant, this box would have been an essential accessory for a well-heeled lady.

Cartier truly captures the essence of Art Deco sophistication with this elegant gold box.  Such diminutive works of art are found most often in prestigious collections throughout the world, representing a bygone "golden age" of luxury and style.
