1950s Rare Unused Stratton Compact Vintage Handbag Mirror


This is a very rare unused mid-century Stratton loose powder compact. This vanity is presented in the original box with all the original accessories. We know the model item code (548/DN), as it is stamped on the box, but as yet we do not know the name of this intriguing vanity.  The Stratton Scone model has rare variations. For example - the Piccadilly (1959/1960), which is just like the Scone, except that it has a lid fashioned into the four leaf clover shape and the Photo Compact (c.1959) which has a heart shaped locket in the lid. The Scone model has also been used to create the Stratton Initial Compact. 

This stunning 1950s accessory has the appearance of the Scone model. The piece is absolutely gorgeous. The lacquered brass gleams and the whole item is elegant and understated. The interior is beautiful and as you would expect a Scone to appear. The inner lid and mirror bezel are both signed Stratton. The exterior lid is what sets this vanity apart. The lid surround is engraved and it forms a two tier bezel to a gorgeous smoked glass mirror. We have never seen a Stratton compact like this before! 

The interior mirror and exterior mirrors are excellent. The box, pouch, puff, sifter and guarantee rosette are all in super condition. Measures 3 inches diameter and weighs 106.3 grams.
