A wonderful powder compact by Le Rage called Le Rendezvous.  This fabulous compact was made in England in the 1950's.  It is large and appears to be unused (there is no powder residue in the powder well).  Le Rendezvous gave the owner the opportunity to dial a time and an activity depending on what they were doing!  There are many different options including tennis, the cinema or a 'Rendezvous' with that special person.  The options are transfer printed.  Inside the compact above the mirror is marked 'Le Rage' with the words 'trade mark' either side and below the mirror are the words 'Made in England' and just above the powder well are the words 'prov pat' meaning provisional patent. There is a catch to open the powder well and this reveals the original powder puff with the 'Le Rage' logo and the original sifter.

The condition is superb.  This is a rare powder compact and to find it in this condition is fabulous.  The body of the compact shows minimal light surface scratches.  The activities are transfer printed and some of the transfer printing has rubbed or lifted.  The majority of the words are colours are there and vibrant.  Please see the photos.  The mirror is in excellent condition and completely clean and bright. The original sifter and puff are unused.  Inside is shiny and bright due to being unused.  Both of the dials (the time and the activity) are useable and move well. It really is a stunning example.
