A petite compact mirror masquerading as a 19th-century still life painting by E. Hariel stows away in purses and car consoles for impromptu touch-ups. The first manufactured compact mirrors and powder cases date back to the late 19th c., although at that time—since cosmetics had yet to be societally embraced—they were often designed for concealment within walking sticks, jewelry, and various other ladylike accoutréments! In the 1920s and 30s, with the mainstream use of makeup, compact cases became increasingly ornamental, often featuring silver-plating, embedded gems, and intricate enamel inlays. Timeless in form and function, our refined take on this handbag essential will graciously assist in a lifetime of lip-linings and nose-powderings.
