A little history about the artist Henry Nahum, known professionally as Baron, a society and court photographer appointed to the British Royal family. He published a book in 1955 called "Gala Performances", portraying real ballet dancers in costuming from actual ballet productions. He died in 1956. Stratton incorporated many of his photographs into a line of compacts depicting ballet dancers and these pieces have become very sought after and desired. Overall, the condition of this example is quite lovely, with no scratches, wear or issues to the cover. The artwork is stunning, a superior rendering and the color palette is wonderful. I believe my photos are excellent and show a very fine illustration of what you should expect to receive. Please excuse the occasional light reflection.

The exterior outer edge of the case has small signs of age and usage but truly nothing that detracts from this delightful compact. The interior lid has a very good and useful mirror, offering a clear image. The original label, explaining how the interior door opens, is still intact. When you open the outer lid and pull it gently back, it easily springs open the inner lid to the powder well. All hinges and working mechanisms are in proper working order, the compact closes with a good snap. The interior powder well is in used or gently used condition with the original powder sifter in place. The exterior of the powder well lid is marked with the Stratton logo.
