Victorian Gold Compact with Fancy Chain

SKU CH3135

Circa 1890. Powder compacts were created by perfumers in the 17th century during Louis XIV's reign. The designs were quickly copied by British jewelers who sold these hand-crafted compacts to the wealthy. It wasn't until the mid-19th century that the compact was available for the middle class. This 14KT compact is a gorgeous piece that comes with a fancy chain, so it can be worn around the neck like a locket and used as a place to store sentimental keepsakes.

The chain measures 16 inches in length. The compact measures 1.75 inches in diameter.
