This pair of miniature canoe paddles was purchased in the 1930's in the 1,000 Lakes region of New York State. One paddle shows an image entitled "Camping" (note the tents set up on the islands)...

Measuring 2 1/4" in diameter with a total depth of 7/8", this is a wonderful example of the lush 1930's style of design sometimes called Louis XIV. The compact is made of brass with rhinestone gems. The photo is original to the piece as I got it, but can easily be changed. The side of the compact has an overall machined design. The top is three dimensionally filagreed. The compact mirror appears to be original and is bevelled. There are no damages or repairs to the compact.
