The interior maintains it's original components and the stitch count is approx. 44 stitches to the inch or 1900 to the square inch, how delightful, can you imagine this type of work.


Made in Austria petit point powder compact unused 1940  

This compact, and several others that I am currently offering, came from a New York collection of very fine Austrian petit point. This compact has been stored away for many decades, never being used and well preserved. As you can see from my photos, this 1940's hand made creation is really pretty, the colors are soft and offer a bit more of an earthier tone. The petit point stitches are complete, I see no issues or problems to mention.  The detailing is exquisite and presented on a nearly white ground with a perimeter border of jet black, I love it and so will you.


The interior is all you could hope for, a clear beveled mirror showing only slight aging, a perfect and unused powder applicator and screen. This compact is ready for you to be the first to use, enjoy or simply admire and continue to preserve. The silver toned frame has a delicate etched design to the lower inner perimeter and the clasp works as it should, opening and closing with a solid snap.


The interior is signed Austria, as shown in the photo above. The top petit point and jet back fabric on the backside wraps the silver toned framing perfecting and is secured as it should be. This lovely 1940's Austrian petit point compact measures 2 inches square and is a great example of micro petit point workmanship, that few are capable of accomplishing today.  You will be pleased to have this petit point compact, coming from a country that is well known for this form of hand made workmanship, also recognized for style and quality. Don't hesitate, these 1940's vintage Austrian compacts are difficult to acquire in unused condition.
