Description

A wonderful cornflower blue guilloché enamel lid tops this antique 1939 English vanity jar. The lid is of solid sterling silver with a gold vermeil finish. Guilloché is a decorative technique in which a very precise, intricate & repetitive pattern is mechanically engraved into an underlying material (in this case sterling silver). This particular pattern starts with a floral or sun-shape at the center with repetitive radiating lines, all topped by a vibrant blue enamel. This lid has great optics to it with a beautiful glow as the light hits it from different angles, giving it a three-dimensional wave. The cut crystal bowl is round with an Art Deco gem-style cut pattern rounding the outside. A starburst decorates the bottom. The lid has a worn maker's hallmark that starts with an "N" & has a super worn cartouche following. It is also stamped with a lion (English sterling silver), leopard face (London, England) & date letter "D" (1939). The outside & inner of the lid has some loss of gold finish & patina to silver underneath. There is also some old tape remnants inside. The lidded box measures approx. 4 inches in diameter x 1 1/2 inches tall. This piece may be great for storing jewelry, cotton balls or other precious tiny things. There is some minor surface wear to the enamel & crystal bottom with one 13mm long scratch on base of jar. The mesmerizing enamel is in very fine condition. Total Wt: 275 grams Diameter: 4 inches Height: 1 1/2 inches Condition: very good antique condition with vintage patina & vintage age wear to the silver, loss of gold finish; enamel is in very fine condition with some minor surface age wear, 13mm scratch on crystal jar bottom Each vintage piece has been examined by a graduate gemologist. Stone carat weights stated represent approximate weights which can vary by the limitations of measuring set gems. Due to the age, antique & vintage jewelry & sterling objects are often not perfect, & may have normal signs of surface wear, or small imperfections due to hand crafting or production in a long gone era rather than mass-manufactured nature. This is what makes each piece special & unique! Please click on FAQs "Do I require signature requirements" at the bottom of this listing to read shipping policies regarding signature requirements.
