[017] Ripley & Gowan Co.

5.8 x 6.3 cm

The U.S.A.

R & G Co





Ripley & Gowan Co., incorporated in 1921, is a famous jewellery company in The U.S.A. It marketed jewellery lines in the names of R&G, R&G Co., LaMode, and the R&G Co letters within a padlock. The earliest compacts date from the 1930’s.

It’s likely that there were a finger ring or tango once attached to this compact as there are two hinges near the catch.
