This is a beautiful Italian silver and hand painted enamel compact, c. 1920s, depicting lovers relaxing in a field. The compact has an enamel malachite border and is in excellent condition. It was made in Florence, Italy and is marked "800" (for 800 silver) and a maker's stamp of what appears to be a pigeon. The back has a gorgeous chased design and the interior is gold washed. The compact comes with the original screen insert and what is probably a replaced mirror.
