Cartier captures the essence of Art Deco sophistication with this elegant gold box. Crafted entirely of 18K yellow gold, this exceptional objet d'art bears a sleek geometric pattern accompanied by contrasting black champlevé enamel on all sides. A simultaneous press of squared buttons on either side unlocks the lid. The box was most likely used as a cosmetics compact and would have been an essential accessory for a well-heeled lady. Such diminutive works of art are found most often in prestigious collections throughout the world, representing a bygone "golden age" of luxury and style.

The box is accompanied by its original red leather Cartier fitted case and is engraved on the lower interior rim "Cartier Paris London New York" with the serial number "03745." The interior lid is marked "Made in France" with the French hallmark for 18K gold.

Circa 1925
