Can I just say, wouldn't it be wonderful if we all had a Grandmother who would give us a 1920s compact from Cartier?! Grazie per la bella storia! A winning entry from Italy:
"I'm a follower from Italy. I love your blog and your gorgeous vintage pieces and I'd like to thank you for the beautiful contest you've made for your blog anniversary (HAPPY ANNIVERSARY then!! )
I'd like to share this story about this little treasure that my grandma gave to me.
She gave me many precious objects, this one is my favourite, a tiny compact (evening minaudiere) in 18k yellow gold and enamels, it's from the twenties and comes from Cartier store in Paris.
