This is a gorgeous vintage 1930's La Mode Art Deco guilloche tango dance compact purse.

It has a beautiful white enameled guilloche lid with a hand painted rose bud design, and is trimmed in a fancy gold plated trim around the lid rim.

The body of the piece is a pretty coral enamel, as is the attached lipstick case.

The chain is beautifully detailed and is also gold plated.

To open the compact you pull back the clasp and it pops open. This is an unusual design that we have not seen before in other compacts.

The interior has a clean chrome swivel powder sifter compartment.

It also has a double metal mirror that is clear and free from damage.

Behind the mirror you will find the original rouge, with the La Mode hallmark stamped in it.

The lipstick case still has the red lipstick remaining, but the push button to push up the lipstick is stuck in place. If you removed the lipstick we are sure it would work freely again, but we will leave that up to the new owner.

The compact measures approximately 2 inches in diameter, the lipstick case is 1 3/4 inches in length. The total length including the chain is 4 3/4 inches.


The guilloche lid is in excellent condition.

The coral enamel has one dot of enamel loss by the clasp opening and one pin point size dot on one corner, both are small and not that noticable.

The lipstick has one small area of coral enamel chipped on one side, the other side is in excellent condition.

The gold chain is in excellent condition, as are the hinges, closures, interior and mirrors.

This is such a lovely piece, in exceptional condition for it's age, and would make a terrific gift for the compact collector.
