This intricately hand stitched Austrian micro petit point powder compact exhibits a delicate worked floral design and comes from the 1940's era.

The colors are quite pleasing to the eyes, my photos do a great job of depicting them along with the many shades and tones, although it looks crisper in person.

The hand stitched workmanship is very finely executed. The micro petit point is wonderful and the stitches count to approx. 48 per inch or 2300 to the square inch, very difficult to accomplish this tedious type of needlework. The floral arrangement is stitched onto a super fine mesh fabric with an underlying background shade of ivory. The artwork appears as though it is raised off of the background, this amount of floral work had to take many weeks to complete. There are no detectable flaws that I can see. This powder compact is in unused, clean and spotless condition, it's gorgeous.


The interior has never been used but rather well preserved and packed away for many decades. This compact and several others I am currently offering, came out of a New York petit point collection that I am proud to offer. The beveled mirror shows a clear image along with some early signs of fogging but it is still very usable and will continue to serve for many years.  The original screen and powder applicator are clean and perfect, having never been used. The silver tone case is beautifully etched around the inner perimeter and the clasp works as it should, push in to open and it closes snugly with a snap.


The interior is signed Austria and this compact was created during the approx. 1940 era. The mesh top and jet black fabric backside wrap the metal work securely, as it should. Please excuse the slight light reflection to the photo showing the backside. Everything about this compact is divine and you, or a fortunate person, will be the first to admire and enjoy it.  This wonderful hand made 1940's Austrian petit point compact measures generously at 3 inches square and is absolutely stunning.  You will not regret adding this superb piece of workmanship to your wardrobe accessories, it has a dynamic appeal that will not likely be seen again. Don't hesitate, I'm sure there can't be many still like it in unused condition.
