A beautiful unused Stratton compact and lipstick tube set. This 1950s bird series vanity set comes with the original presentation box, luxury puff, velour edged sifter, pouch, instruction leaflets and padded cushion insert.  

The cobalt blue enamel is decorated with ducks flying over a reed bed. There isn't any enamel loss and both items are in very good condition. The mirror gives an excellent reflection. The mirror bezel is signed " STRATTON MADE IN ENGLAND". Back in the day these sets were very expensive and given on special occasions like a young lady's twenty first birthday. This is reflected in the high quality materials the makers used. The base of the compact has the all over star design. The Stratton 'Convertible' powder compact measures 3" and weighs 94.4 grams.

The lipstick holder is just delightful - very beautiful and made with great attention to detail. The original instruction leaflet in the shape of a red lipstick instructs the new owner to 'Insert into this base your complete Lipstick Refill. If it fits loosely, slightly push inwards the three LARGE 'U' SHAPED PRONGS to ensure firm grip'.  The other side of the card reads as follows - 'The Stratton LIPSTICK HOLDER'. The end of the lipstick holder is signed 'Stratton No.2'. It measures almost 2 1/4" and weighs 10.3 grams.
