So, this is my little mystery. We used to go to a lot of antique and collectable fairs so I think perhaps I got it at one of those – but I don’t actually remember buying it.
This little pot – which I think might be Bakelite – has a slightly worse for wear mirror on the inside but the most lovely thing is that I can still smell that very sweet powdery scent – it makes me think maybe it’s a rouge pot as rouge was quite often more scented than powder.
I think that perhaps it’s art deco – there’s a little touch of Arthur Ransom about it but equally any fashion illustration from the 1920-30’s although dresses were much droopier than the full skirt depicted here. That said, this is a popular ‘pose’ on vintage rouge pots with similar designs also depicting full skirts. So – if you fancy going on a mystery tour – please do – I’d be most appreciative of any information you might be able to dig up.
