Up for auction is a rare Hilda Terry lady's compact. The title of this compact I learned is "Lindy Dancers". The compact is in very good condition with no damage to the picture (it is signed Hilda Terry) the back has a little discoloration. T is no powder or puff inside but it does have a mirror. is a bit of information aboout Hilda Terry:

Hilda Terry was the comic artist who created the teenage girl comic 'Teena'. It ran from 1941 until 1966. Hilda Terry also became known for being the first woman to join the National Cartoonists Society in 1950. Up until then, the NCS had been all male, with the excuse that "men wouldn't be able to curse" if women were present. Hilda Terry sent a letter in 1949, asking the organization to either change its name to National Men Cartoonists Society or allow women to become members.
After 'Teena', Hilda Terry went into computer animation and was awarded the prize for best animation cartoonist by the National Cartoonists Society in 1979.

I need to make a correction. I originally thought this was called Lindy Dancers but when I now look at it again, it's actually a group of teenagers trying to see how many can fit into a car, kind of looks like dancing but isn't. Everything else is correct - this was probably from one of her Teena cartoons. Sorry for the mistitle, unfortunately too late to change it.
