Briggs White Gold Filled Compacts c1927 Advertisement

Striking full color advertisements for Briggs compacts and vanity cases from a 1927 Huntley & Co. catalog. All of these compacts will have the marking of "DFB Co." I love the elegant chain handles on these, they are perfect for dancing the tango and was the reason for why they are named tango compacts or dance compacts. Each one has beautiful engine turned or enameled details which make them even more attractive. Most are made up of white gold or green gold fill, most have sterling silver tops.
