And because I’m thinking about Valentine’s Day and Weddings here are a few compacts for the occasion.
Here are two oversized compacts in red called flapjacks (as in pancakes). The locket like hearts on the one on the right are raised, making it three dimensional.
And what is more perfect for Valentines Day, or a wedding for that matter, then a beautiful red rose? This compact is by Stratton of England.
And from the moment I got this compact, it reminded me of bridal lace. Also made in England by Vogue.
One of my favorites is the enamel compact from Elgin American. I love it’s shape, but the blue birds with the rings and the wedding bells are just the sweetest!
This compact was lovingly used, but still so charming. Another Elgin American with a beautiful Victorian bride and her groom.
This last compact was a gift given to a bridesmaid. For Sue and Dick’s wedding, August 10, 1957. By Elgin American. Apparently both the bride and the bridesmaid were named Sue. Neat bridesmaid gift if you ask me!!
