Dunhill Enamel Cosmetic Box
Dunhill Enamel Cosmetic Box


 
Enamel over silver Dunhill cosmetic box, ca 1920. By the end of the 19th century, the emancipation of women the world over allowed that women could more freely use cosmetics. This in turn created a luxury market for items to carry powder, rouge, and other products. All the major design houses produced beautiful containers such as this silver and enamel compact. This is a Dunhill product made in Germany of sterling silver. The words "sterling", "Germany" and "Alfred Dunhill" are impressed at the edge of the opening of the box. The design in enamel of a temple and pavilion on the front and landscape with pine trees on the back is an added notion of exotic richness.
