The most adorable rare enamel vintage Stratton Pontoon powder compact. This rather special Arabian Nights themed compact is so much more delightful than the images show. The minutely detailed Persian characters, animals and birds are depicted on a gleaming golden enamel background which is beautifully lacquered. The colours are as vibrant as they were in the middle of the twentieth century when this vanity was crafted by the premier British maker.
The Pontoon model only has three known years of availability (different lid decorations) - 1948, 1952 and 1953. The compact is presented with all the original accessories - box, felt pouch, puff and instruction leaflet. The compact and all the accessories do not have any traces of powder residue and are in good condition. Measures 3 inches long x just over 2 1/2 inches. Weighs 102 grams.
This compact is a highly collectible accessory which is ideal for display, rather than a handbag accessory.
