We always have wanted one of these compacts ever since we first started collecting. Click here to see more vintage compact mirrors

We are delighted to have this in the collection because of the sought-after lid, excellent quality of the enamel and that it has the original accessories too. Click on image four you will see the luxurious satinised lid and in black enamel toasts from all around the world - just delightful! The main lid is decorated with colourful bottles of alcohol, glasses of wine, cocktails, mugs of beer, grapes on the vine, lemons, cork screws & even two magic wands. What a magical vintage Stratton powder compact. Ideal for the collector or to celebrate a very special occasion. As you would expect from Stratton the enamel is superb & the enamel decorations have applied with great skill & attention to detail. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. This compact comes with all the accessories, box, pouch, puff & sifter all of which are in excellent condition. The inner lid is beautiful & decorated with the 'Compact-in-Hand' logo showing that this compact is fitted with an automatic self-opening lid. Tilt back the mirror slightly & the inner lid pops open. Stratton patented this mechanism. It was designed to prevent ladies from breaking their nails. This mechanism still works perfectly every time. The mirror gives an excellent reflection - it has a few age related marks but nothing that would spoil the enjoyment of this compact. The base is decorated with a fine spiral. Measures almost 3" & weighs 92.2 grams.
