This compact is signed ‘Baron’ which was the professional name of Stirling Henry Nahum (1906-1956). Baron was the photographer to royalty and celebrities but was also known in his early career for ballet photographs, particularly the Sadler’s Wells ballet company. The image on this compact is a copy of one of his beautiful photographs.
This rare compact is 7.5cm and from the Stratton Princess range featuring the self-opening ‘Compact in Hand’ inner lid.
Condition is extremely good throughout and appears unused with the original sifter, makers tag and clean original Stratton puff. All mechanisms are working perfectly and there is no evidence of any enamel loss. The interior mirror which has the original stickers still attached has a lovely exquisite bevelled edge and gives a good reflection with just a very light misting consistent with age, which does not detract in any way from the superb beauty of this very fine tactile compact. The base of the compact is gold tone and detailed with pretty stars.
