    I picked this up because the color is so striking. It has a nice painted black pinstripe around the enamel. I realize the mirror is not in great shape, and the puff is not original, but I won't be wearing the makeup, anyway :-). The silver is tarnished, but the enamel is in great shape. The inside is marked 7030, with GB in a diamond underneath. The bluish color of the light in pic 4 is from my magnifying glass, it has an LED bulb built in. So far I haven't found that mark out there, but I' still looking!
    Update 10.22.15:
    I got a microscope and got a better picture of the mark. vetraio50 may be right but the center is still hard to make out.

      There's an ebay item with a G.B. mark similar said to be probably Gaston Bardies.

      http://www.ebay.com/itm/ANTIQUE-20thC-FRENCH-SOLID-SILVER-GUILLOCHE-ENAMEL-BOX-PARIS-c-1900-/131538042720

      Nut is it Gaston Bardies, 1897 — 1914 (13, Rue de Fontaines,Paris) ?
    16. vetraio50 vetraio50, 6 years ago
      But is it Bardies, Gaston 1897 — 1914 (13, Rue de Fontaines,Paris)?

      Thanks vetraio50 I think you might be correct. That would be sweet!
