A rare boxed 1950s Stratton "Empress" enamel cigarette or card case. This case has the most exquisitely beautiful enamel lid which is a joy to behold. The cream enamel background is super and set atop in relief is a beautiful floral display. I have never seen this case before. There isn't any enamel loss or damage. Set atop the enamel are tiny glass beads which form the charming floral display. They are tiny and subtle - visible through a jeweller's loupe. The technique is known as ballotini . When you see an item of this quality it reaffirms exactly why the vintage Stratton brand has such a huge and loyal following. 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 pretty vertical stripes. As well as the original presentation box this case also comes with the original pouch.

A remarkably beautiful mid-century Stratton accessory!

The vintage cigarette case measures 9 1/2 cm X 8 1/4 cm & weighs 95.9 grams.
