What a romantic gift this antique enameled brass compact would be for your favorite lady! Love is written all over it - literally - in loads of languages. "Ich liebe dich" and "Te Vous Aime" are just the beginning; there are even Oriental characters, as well as the English words, "I love you."
The patent number 1439749 allows us to date this beauty precisely to the very dawn of the Art Deco era. It also bears a maker stamp - SCHILDKRAUT PROD CORP DISTRIBUTOR NEW YORK - and a label "L" on the lipstick. In good condition for a functional item of this age, it comes from -- bet you guessed it -- an estate in Florida, the ultimate Art Deco mecca.
There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping, with an equivalent discount on international delivery, and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
