An attractive silver compact made in Italy and imported into the UK in 1962 carrying a full set of import marks for Birmingham for sterling 925 silver.

The scene is surrounded by blue enamel panels, encased in engraved silver. The silver sides and rear of the compact are similarly engraved. The compact opens by pushing the lipstick holder. The powder mesh is present and there is also a mirror.
