The compact is not hallmarked, but appears to be made by, D.F.B., which stands for the D.F. Briggs Company, mostly recognized for their higher end watch fobs. We've had other compacts by this manufacturer, and this also appears to be one of their designs.
The compact is 3 inches in length by 2 inches in width and 1 inch in depth.
The edges are very ornately decorated with a beautiful repousse design, and are gold plated or gold washed the interior is also gold washed.
There are some machine tooled horizontal designs on the back of the piece, as well as a more decorative gold and silver design on the lid with a black enamel medallion and a single pink rose handpainted on it.
The closure works perfectly and the hinge action is smooth.
It opens to two separate and empty compartments. You can flip the center divider to expose the two separate sides.
The piece comes with a pretty gold wristlet chain, which makes it a lovely way of carrying this compact.
As with all vintage items, there may be slight age appropriate wear.
