Italian 800 SILVER Inlay PIETRA DURA Style COMPACT

Description :

Offered for sale is a very unusual Italian 800 silver compact with a lipstick holder. The lid is inlaid with colorful semi-precious stones in a Pietra Dura style design. An especially neat feature is the stone on the side that is a spring loaded latch to open the lid. The compact has the original beveled mirror (some wear) and a place for a small tube of lipstick. This piece measures 1" high, 3" long and 2 1/4" across. It is marked "R. Contini Firenze 800" with an impressed seal that is very hard to decipher. The compact is in good estate condition with the only flaw I find a hairline crack in the inlay--not distracting (I only found it under the bright camera lights) but see enlarged photos to evaluate. Overall weight is 5.045 ounces (4.596 troy) which includes the lid. This elegant Italian silver and inlay compact will be a special choice for your collection! The cost of U.S. insured shipping and very careful packing is included with your purchase.
