For your consideration is this rare F & B signed compact circa 1910. It is made with the finest of workmanship and has 3 tiny amethyst stone or glass, opener buttons. Hallmarked F & B in a flag cartouche inside.

On the front is a shield or crest with a unicorn topper. This shield contains the Latin words, " JUNCTA JUVANT" which mean: things united aid each other or, union in strength, along with a set of scales, sword, book and 3 Fleur-di-Lis:

Sword: Authority & Power
Scales: Justice

There is a cartouche on the engine-turned backside with the inscription: REM in Asian-type script; top to bottom.

This is a very old piece and as such, has a few issues: some of the gold rolled plate has worn in areas and the inside latch to one of the two compartments does not stay securely closed. This looks like a quick fix as the latch just needs to be bent a bit to catch. There is a horizontal-linear ding under the crest which resembles a reflection in the 1st photo, but it is a slight indentation.

This closes very securely with a "snap!" The inside mirror is very good except for a very small nick at the tippy-top.

Please look at all photos enlarged.

This is a very collectible and charming compact!
