I’ve been meaning to put these two compacts on CW for years but never got round to doing so, now here they are.
I think that they are both Italian probably made around the 1940s. One as lovely Turquoise’s stone with pattern around the stones and is marked for 800 silver. The other has a multitude of different coloured stones, it’s only since I looked at them both together that they are slightly different. I put a photo with markings on the multi coloured stone compact, it Is stamped 925 and a marking besides which I can’t decipher there seems to be numbers and letters. As I said before they are very similar with both of the compacts having a textured finish, they are both really heavy I wouldn’t like to carry them around in my handbag.
Many thanks for looking.
