These were made in Birmingham by Collins & Sons Ltd from 1960, and are stamped on the inner lid. I just have three of this make at the moment.
|A lovely compact in pale green enamel with sylized leaves and flowers and central panel on the lid and a flower design on the back. A gift from Felix, bought from Jan West at our Bristol convention.|
|Goldtone shell-effect pattern, this compact was commissioned by HMS Urania and presented to the wives of serving members of the crew. The picture on the right shows a close-up of the ship's crest.|
|Very pretty, slim compact with goldtone centre and coral-coloured outer rim. Inner lid with sifter & puff which appear unused.|
