Reserved for Yad until Feb. 6th... An exquisite Djer Kiss powder and rouge compact in a fancy presentation box. Beautiful raised Art Nouveau scene depicting kissing woodland nymphs or fairies, in silverplate.

Inside, there's a powder compartment with Djer-Kiss puff and a rouge compartment concealed behind a glass two-sided mirror. Much of the rouge remains, along with a wax paper overlay marked "This is a Medium Rouge Djer-Kiss refills for this case are on sale everywhere". The powder compartment is marked "Djer-Kiss Poudre Kerkoff" and still contains a few traces of the original powder.

Box top is covered with green and white mottled decorative paper, and the bottom is decorated in gold paper. Inside, it's lightly padded and lined with purple satin on the bottom. The lift-off lid has matching satin on top and lighter purple moire-type paper or lightweight fabric inside. Box is marked on top and on all four sides of the base section. There's also a paper label on the bottom reading "Djer-Kiss Silver Double Chair Powder Medium Loose Rouge".

Both compact and box are in fantastic condition. Compact is about 3" x 3" acros the top, and has a nice aged patina and no issues at all -- I don't see any dents, dings or deep scratches. This mirror shows some light wear, with a few minor scratches -- nothing that detracts at all. The box shows light edge and corner wear -- lighter than I'd expect on something of this age. Even the satin looks great - no holes, tears, spots or fading. This came from the estate of a true pack-rat, and was probably wrapped in tissue paper as I found it for many years.

One of the nicest compacts I've ever seen, in amazing condition!
