Exquisite 1950's Stratton Musica featuring an image of Nadia Nerina from the ballet Swan Lake. Plays La Ronde.

The illustrated lid of this gorgeous musical powder compact shows the famous ballerina taking the part of the Black Swan as photographed by the high society photographer Sterling Henry Nahum, more commonly known as Baron.

The gold finish makes this quite a magical piece and there is barely a mark on it. Inside we find the original paper labels 'Thorens Swiss Movement La Ronde', 'Nadia Nerina in Swan Lake' and one telling us that if we push the mirror back the powder well lid pops open. As we look into the well, where we place loose face powder, we see the original sifter. To play the music we have to lift the small stopper.

Comes with its original pouch but will be gift boxed too. A beautiful gift for someone special.

Measures: Length: 3 1/4 inches, Width: 2 3/4 inches, height: 3/4 inch.

Condition: Immaculate overall. The exterior and gold finish is virtually perfect. The base of the powder well is marked (you don't see this once it contains powder). The mirror is clear to use but from an angle you can see it has a slight haze. The musical box has recently been professionally cleaned and works but has a slight tick.

UK delivery is free. We also ship worldwide.

All vintage items have been pre-used, unless stated otherwise, and may have gentle signs of wear.
