The Leyendecker Collection celebrates the legacy of America’s first celebrity illustrator, J.C. Leyendecker, who captured America’s gilded age so perfectly in his art, and embodied its virtues through the courage with which he lived.
Each of our compacts is artfully built from solid brass, finished with true engine turned gold plate, and stylishly adorned with rich, carefully curated artwork. 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 each and every detail we build upon on it. More info on what makes a Charles Mallory compact so without equal can be found on our Design page.
Charles Mallory Powder Compacts are based on original vintage molds. They can be refilled with any loose powder, and almost all standard sized pressed powders. See our care and use page for sizing details.
Purchases from our website are covered for life by Mr. Mallory’s personal guarantee.
The Arrow Collar Man is one of Leyendecker’s most iconic images, modeled after his muse and partner, Charles Beach. Portraits of Beach remain the definitive representations of a gentleman of the era, here depicted wonderfully with a lover mid-Waltz. The subtle embrace perfectly captures the stately, refined elegance of that dignified time.
