Vintage Bejeweled and Mother of Pearl Compact / Wristlet Purse, Wiesner of Miami, ca 1950s.

$240.00 USD


Joseph Wiesner (1904-1963) was truly the Bling King...and he personally designed all his accessories.

This particular compact which can also function as a wristlet / purse, and made by Wiesner of Miami, is shiny gold tone, bejeweled on the top with large square and rectangular pink crystals and large clear teardrop crystals. The jewels are mounted on mother of pearl; the underside of the piece is all mother of pearl. Please be sure to note the "secret compartment" on the interior - perhaps for a small cash stash?

This beauty measures 3/4" high, 5 1/4" wide and 3" deep; the gold snake chain measures 4 1/2" when extended. As you can see, it is in excellent vintage condition: it looks to have never been used, although there is a scratch on the top of the powder case. and it can be difficult to open at times.

This exquisite compact would certainly make heads turn every time you pull it out and would be a wonderful addition to your vintage collection.
