As good as my photos are and they do depict this compact well, they do not really tell the story of how difficult it is to perform this type of workmanship. The Austrian artisans were well skilled in this form of needlework and so few can accomplish this today. This is an all over floral pattern of soft tones, yet still lively and crisp, on an antiqued ivory background. All of the stitches are in wonderful condition, as this compact has been stored away for many decades and properly cared for.... totally preserved.  The colors are soft and feminine and this compact will be a wonderful addition to one of your petit point purses or simply give it a place on your vanity.

This interior is in perfect "unused" condition, a treat for the petit point collector. It will arrive to you complete with it's clear beveled mirror, showing a good image and barely any aging. The original clean and perfect make-up applicator and powder screen are ready for you to use, admire or continue to preserve. These Austrian treasures are hard to acquire in this wonderful condition and they make delightful heirloom pieces or gifts, as they cannot be replaced and are usually one-of-a-kind.


The silver toned metal framing is strong and signed Austria as shown above. The top petit point and the bottom fabric are wrapped around the metal framing and secure as they should be. The clasp is in solid working order and all aspects of this compact are fabulous. The backside is covered with what appears to be an ivory or beige crushed velvet, all slightly ribbed with a low nap. This 1940's Austrian floral petit point compact measures just about 2 inches square and will not disappoint it's next owner. If you enjoy ultra fine petit point, from a country with a good reputation for quality, you will appreciate adding this compact to your treasury of finer hand worked accessories or gifting it to that special someone.
