MAXFIELD PARRISH Kissing Fairies DJER-KISS POWDER COMPACT +PERFUME Spring Loaded
A Djer-Kiss Kissing Fairies Powder Compact plus Miniature Perfume Bottle in spring-loaded Sterling Silver enclosure.
We are pleased to present this estate lot of two (2) collectible vanity items for your consideration. You will receive the following:
Djer-Kiss Kissing Fairies Powder Compact. This is the highly sought after Maxfield Parrish design that was released in 1925 by the French company Kerkoff. It measures about 2 inches square by about 5/8 inch thick, weighing 2.1 ounces (60 grams). Silver plated, it shows moderate tarnish on its exterior, but is in very good physical condition, free of any bumps or dents. Mechanical components (hinges and latch) are all in good working order. A bit of silver polish, and this Compact will look outstanding!
Miniature Perfume Bottle with Enclosure. This tiny Perfume Bottle comes in a spring-loaded Sterling Silver enclosure monogrammed "M" on one side. It measures 2-3/8 inches in length with 1/2 inch by 7/16 inch sides, weighing 0.7 ounce (21 grams). The Perfume Bottle appears to be in fine shape, but we were not able to get the lid off and didn't want to force it (a soak in hot water will probably do the trick). The Sterling enclosure shows some light tarnish and wear to the surface finish, but nothing too bad. The spring is fully functional. We rate the condition of this item as very good.
The combined weight of the two items is 2.8 ounces. All pictures show the actual items you will receive.
