by Charles Mallory London
3.5 x 3.5 x .5 in
The William Morris collection by Charles Mallory exhibits the work of Britain’s most renowned Victorian textile designer. This particular piece is called ‘Golden Lily’.
Each of the Charles Mallory London compacts is artfully machined from solid brass, finished in gold plate, and richly enameled. Charles Mallory London not only gains inspiration from the legacy of exceptional craftsmanship won by British jewelers in the “Golden Age” of compacts, but in every detail, from the crystal clarity of our mirrors to their subtle, solid clasp, we build upon on it.
The dual mirror compact contains a true magnification mirror and a 5x magnification mirror for impressive detail.
This design was inspired by the art of John Dearle, a former Morris & Co. employee. He was an exceptional textile designer, who started his working life as an assistant in William Morris’s first shop on Oxford Street.
