A Collector's Compacts

Lovely 1940s compact from Judith Works' private collection, author of Coins in the Fountain A Memoir of Rome   (Recommended Read!), and friend.  I especially love all the detail on the ladies' dress and the poodle's bow. The interior on this compact for carrying all the essentials is intact.

From Judith Works collection, a compact again from the 1940s.  The delicate scrollwork is fascinating, and notice the finger loop

From Judith Works collection, the bloom hasn't faded from this compact dated in the 1920s.  Its original interior organization was removed at some time so it could be used later by the owner as a cigarette case.  Thank you so much Judith for a glimpse into your beautiful collection!
