This compact, and several others that I am currently offering, comes from a prominent New York City petit point collection that I am thrilled to offer you.  All items are from Austria, have been properly stored for decades and never used. The stitches on this compact are very tiny at 40 stitches per inch or 1600 to the square inch.  The color palette is divine, showing a full spectrum of hues and the jet black perimeter background really makes the scene pop. You will be captivated by the lovely couple, dressed in period clothing, surrounded by lush landscaping on a fenced stairway with architecture in the background  All stitches are intact and secure, no damages, wear or staining.

The interior is superb with it's beveled mirror, as well as it's unused, clean and spotless powder puff applicator and screen.  The mirror is clear and shows a good image when you look directly into it, no problems applying your powder. When you pull it away and tip it aside, you will see the very early signs of aging but this mirror still has years, if not decades, of service to offer you. The golden brassy toned metal casing is lovely and it is gently etched at the inner perimeter.  The metal is lovely and shows only a natural patina.


The clasp opens and closes properly and snaps the compact shut snugly as it should. The backside is covered in a jet black material, please excuse the slight light refection in the lower part of the photo. The petit point and the backside wraps itself smoothly into the framing and is all secured.  This striking 1940's Austrian figural petit point compact measures a generous 3 inches square and is an incredible example of micro petit point, all hand made.  I know you will be delighted to add this hand made beauty to your treasured accessories. Again it is clean, unused and oh so worthy, please add it to your collection or consider gifting it to that special someone.
