Houghton Ensign Midget 33

The Ensign Midget 33 "Silver" is a silver variation of the Ensign Midget 33 standard.
It was produced in 1935 to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of King George V and Queen Mary. There is also a silver version of the  Midget 55. Curiously these "special" variations were sold at the same price as the "normal".
The Ensign Midget 33 "Silver", rigorous when folded, becomes superb once deployed.
King George V had died a year after the Jubilee.
