Fine sterling silver Art Deco style makeup compact, circa 1930's. The exterior features an engraved line pattern that radiates out from a stunning bejewelled tiered 14 carat gold classic art deco design accent thumb piece. Set into this eye catching thumb piece are three beautiful, square, sparkling, cornflower blue sapphires. The decorative case lid opens to reveal the first compartment of the compact with the mirror perfectly intact. This opens up to reveal the last section, with remnants of the original powder residue. Inside the case it is stamped CARTIER STERLING & 14K. The case is in good used vintage condition and is a sheer delight to hold in your hand. It could still function as it was originally intended or just be a beautiful objet d'art.
