Dorset was a big name among 5th Avenue brands when it came to powder compacts. Beside making lucite handbags, Dorset produced moderately priced compacts from the 1930s until 1950. In 1951 they merged with their 5th Avenue rival, Rex to become Dorset - Rex and discontinued manufacturing under the Dorset brand.
