1950's Le Rage Compact with Medieval Scenes of Hawking & Riding through a Forest (SOLD)

This round gilt compact from the 1950's is fabulous! The cold enamel transfer on the front depicts a repeat pattern of medieval style huntsmen on white horses riding through a forest of trees bearing huge orange fruits.  Some of the riders have birds of prey on their arms and some are blowing a hunting horn.  There is an assortment of realistic and fantasy birds all around too,  There are birds that could be turkeys some  peacocks and other smaller blue and yellow birds .  Dotted in amongst this scene are small flowers and leaves in various colours.  This compact is the work of the  Evans Components Co. Ltd a British maker who chose the French-sounding name 'Le Rage' for its compact range. I guess that during the 1950's it conjured up a chic continental feel for this luxury product.   The Company seem to have made compacts for only a few years during the 1950's but their work is of a high standard and is comparable to the much-collected makers Vogue Vanities and Stratton.   The compact has been designed to take loose powder and has an inner compartment with a lid.  This lid has an engine turned design and the Le Rage signature mark  with the words 'British Made' and Regd to show that the Company registered their design for this powder compact.  The original puff and powder sieve are also in it with a little face powder too!  The mirror is good with no flaws or age specks.  The reverse of this compact is a smooth satin finish gold tone metal with one or two dings or dents to it.  This compact has been used but it is in generally good order has an immaculate front so would be perfect in a display case with other vintage compacts.  It does close very tightly so could be used too if preferred.  This vintage 1950's  Le Rage compact measures 9cms in diameter and is 8 mms thick.
