A gorgeous enamel Stratton 'Empress' cigarette case in excellent condition. This mid-century case is large enough for modern cigarette as well as debit / credit / business cards. The case has the most beautiful cobalt blue enamel and exquisite white enamel floral motifs with gilt accents. The colours are as vibrant as they were when the case was first made almost seventy years ago.The high quality enamel and the excellent condition of this case shows why vintage Stratton accessories have such a following. The enamel is highly reflective and so we have included a dull over head shot (image two) so that potential customers can what good condition this piece is in. This accessory is so well made it will not need to be cleaned. It was coated at the point of manufacture with a layer of lacquer which protects the brass and prevents tarnishing. This case comes with the original instruction leaflet and an immaculate velvet drawstring pouch. All clasps and hinges work perfectly. It is so typical of Stratton to feature a clever design. The cigarette clip can be moved to accommodate both lengths of cigarettes available in the 1950s - standard and king size. So this means that this case can accommodate modern cigarettes too as well as bank notes, business and credit / debit cards. The cigarette clip is signed " Stratton REG....PAT NO 851743." The inner case & back of the cigarette case are decorated with vertical stripes. Measures 9.5 cm X 8.6 cm & weighs 90.4 grams.
