Vintage Highly Detailed Thistle Compact
A vintage highly detailed thistle compact. This vintage compact bears the embossed image of a Scottish thistle flower set in between modern-looking scroll work waves based in part on the thistle leaf design. The thistle is set between modern-looking scroll work waves with an engine turned detailing in the enter and a floral embossed image at the top. Hints of purple enameling decorate the floral detailing above and below the thistle. A silver-tone metal latch at the bottom holds the lid securely in place. The compact opens to reveal a hinged highly reflective polished silver-tone metal shield that serves as a mirror. A pink puff and rouge are set within a gold-tone metal interior. The back of the compact is decorated with engine turned vertical metal stripes. The compact measures approx. 2" x 2" x 1/2" and opens to approx. 3-5/8" wide.
