This is the most delightful Le Rage powder compact made in the 1950s that would have originally been sold in the presentation box shown on image five. The compact is superbly made with a beautiful lid - the central cartouche being heart shaped & the rest of the lid is decorated with a complex guilloche design. The whole compact is in excellent condition. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. The mirror is excellent & gives a perfect reflection. The inner lid is also decorated with guilloche engraving. The original sifter is in place & so this may still be used with loose face powder. The base has the design of a fine spiral. This compact is not signed 'Le Rage' as it came with the pouch, puff & box all signed with the brand name. I know this to be a Le Rage compact as I had one several years ago identical to this which did bear the Le Rage signature. Often companies would not sign the actual compact if the accessories belonging to the compact were stamped with the brand name.
Free with this compact comes a large & beautifully illustrated historical fact pack about the history of Le Rage compacts & accessories made by Evans Components Co. Ltd.
