Italian Gilt-Silver Enamel Rococo Compact C 1950

Gilt-silver and enamel Rococo powder compact. Made in Italy, C 1950. Sides and underside decorated with acid-etched foliage and flowers. Pastoral scene on cover: In background is landscape. In foreground is seated group next to overgrown architectural element. One woman appears to protect another woman from a manís advances. Two sheep amble off to the side. Ambivalent group dynamics prettily portrayed in Rococo style in bright polychrome enamel. Beveled mirror on cover interior. To be kept in your purse for enlivening the most banal workday. BJ445
