upstatenyc…
(259 items)

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, 2 years ago
    But is it Bardies, Gaston 1897 — 1914 (13, Rue de Fontaines,Paris)?
