This lovely Stratton ballet compact is decorated with a ballerina and her partner. The image is printed onto a reflective blue enamel lid. This is one of a series of ballet designs by Cecil Golding, and is signed on the lid. The compact self is the slightly larger Marquis shape. The base has an engine turned pattern of concentric circles, dating this compact to the early 1950s. The self opening inner lid, with Stratton's "compact in hand" logo, is opened by gently tipping back the mirror. "Made in England" is engraved on the gold tone rim above the mirror. This compact appears to be lightly used and has its unused powder sifter and puff.
I also have other ballet compacts from this set available for sale.
