Our Heritage Collection works symmetry and colour into truly majestic patterns. This piece is called ‘Peacock’.
Each of our 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. More info on what makes a Charles Mallory compact so without equal can be found on our Design page.
The powder compact, which can be used with loose or pressed powder, contains a removable sifter and puff, sized to accommodate any standard pressed powder or powder puff. For further details on using our powder compacts, visit our ‘Compact care and use’ page which can be found at the bottom of this page.
A distinguished and remarkable creature, the Peacock was brought to Europe by Alexander the Great after his campaign in the Indian subcontinent. Their resplendent plumage has been used variously to symbolize royalty, vanity, immortality and the Cosmos – the many eyes representing celestial bodies on heaven’s shimmering, mystical background.
The Peacock reminds us to wear our true feathers with pride.
