    This is a silver enamel compact by Bravinton Ltd which has the date mark for 1936 the enamel is in perfect condition. I was doing some research on Bravington Ltd and it seems to me they were a retailers that sold silver compacts, jewellery to clocks and they seem to have specialized in military watches. They are still operating to this day.
    This compact is in really lovely condition the guilloche enamelling is stunning I think they call this type of enamelling sunburst, I’ll put a link on below about guilloche.

    Many thanks for looking

      Hi Newfld, yes the blue is amazing it really stands out. The textured swirls are underneath the top enamelling coating which is smooth. I do love my enamel work, but it can be very expensive. I’ve had this compact for years, I kept forgettening to put it on CW. Newfld I really appreciate your comment.
