VINTAGE COMPACT - MAN IN RED JACKET & CREAM TROUSERS

This amazing compact is probably 1930-1940's.  It depicts a man dressed in a black hat, red jacket, cream trousers and black shoes.  It takes loose powder and has a sifter and puff.  For a full description look on my web site - www.gillianhorsup.com - and look at the pictures of the back and inside.  I love powder compacts and always have a selection in my shop at Grays Antiques in central London.  I am in the Mews - which is a separate building from the main Grays.  Look for me at Vintage Modes downstairs.
