An English R.A.F. silver square powder compact, Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Co. Ltd., Birmingham, 1939. - image 1 of 10

Engine turned to both sides within a plain border, the front applied with a part enamelled Royal Air Force (RAF) emblem and an enamelled blue, white and red 'ribbon' to a corner, mirror now missing. Dated : 1939. Sterling silver.

An interesting piece from the year running into the start of the Second World War, with RAF associations. Perhaps a gift for a sweetheart or maybe owned by a member of the Women's Royal Airforce or WAAF, which was formed that year. The Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Co. was an important London firm that was established in 1880 and eventually, in 1952, absorbed into Garrard's the then Crown Jewellers, It is a shame that the mirror is missing and that there are a few dents, but the association with the RAF will always be popular with collectors, particularly pieces from this period.
