The Art of Compacts, Pill Boxes, and Mirrors: Precious Metals Used by Women, 1900-1950

About this collection

The Art of Compacts, Pill Boxes, and Mirrors: Precious Metals Used by Women, 1900-1950, includes a collection of twenty items used by women for personal beautification and reflects the lost art of adorning simple items. This collection will bring back to light the decorative arts used in women’s personal items made of precious metals. The art of highly adorning items is a practice that has long since been forgotten in women’s personal items. Such items of today can rarely be found with such attention given to them. This collection is important because it reflects our personal heritage and speaks of a time that no longer exists.
