A special find! A "kissing fairy" compact! The kissing fairy scene was designed my Maxfield Parrish.

Measuring 2" square, this metal repousse compact is signed Djer Kiss on the outside, on the lid just above the clasp.The metal does not test positive for silver. The kissing fairies on the lid are framed with a sun ray border. The back of the compact has a hammered design, again bordered by sun rays. There are little bumps where the outside hinge is. Might be part of the design. I'm not sure. There was a yellow spot on the left side of the back, seen in the third pic. I have since removed it.

The clasp works fine, opening easily and snapping shut. There are two compartments inside. The powder compartment contains no powder but has a loose sifter marked Djer Kiss, Poudre and Kerkoff. The sifter has quite a bit of metal surface wear. There is a patent date of 5-19-25.

The hinged, double sided mirror works fine, snapping shut. One mirror has some overall light clouding, but is still usable. The other one has a little corner clouding.

The 2nd compartment still holds some rouge, and has a worn powder puff marked hygienol veri-flat Made in USA.

What a find!
