More vintage powder compacts.

This beauty is an early Stratton 'Princess'. The 'Princess' model was launched in 1953 to celebrate the coronation of Princess Elizabeth and it is fitting that it is an elegant, slender and ornate powder compact. The lid decoration is an absolute joy to behold..........golden satinized enamel is adorned with floral motifs. The whole item is in superb condition. It is like going back to 1953 and buying this accessory from the makers, Jarrett, Rainsford & Laughton Ltd. Around the gilt indented edges scroll work adds to the luxurious appeal of this piece. All clasps and hinges work perfectly. This vanity was coated at the point of manufacture with a layer of lacquer which means it will never tarnish or need to be cleaned. The bevelled mirror has a frosted glass border and the original mirror sticker is in place. Such great attention to detail - even the underside of the inner lid is beautifully satinized. The self-opening inner lid opens perfectly every time. The original box, beautifully embroidered pouch, pink signed puff & velour edged sifter are in place. The presentation box is of course signed 'Stratton', as well as being stamped with the catalogue number for this piece '522 / 75'. The whole item is gleaming and clean. The base has an engine turned design of vertical lines. 

Measures 3" and weighs 89.8 grams.

This compact is suitable for use with all brands of loose face powder or as a handbag mirror.
