This vintage powder compact is by British company Mascot. It has a dark blue leather effect lid, with a British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) airline logo in the centre. This company was formed in 1939 and ended in 1974 when it merged with British Europe Airlines (B.E.A.). This compact probably dates to between the 1960s and mid 1970s. The underside has an engine turned stripe design. "Made in Great Britain" is engraved beneath the large square mirror. The striped inner lid lifts to reveal the compact's used sifter.
