A rare enamel Stratton Queen powder compact with a complete inner lid.
This model (with different lid decorations) has only two known years of availability (1957 & 1958) and so even back in the day availability was very limited. We have not seen this lid decoration before. The whole compact is in very good condition. The enamel is gorgeous! A splendid bouquet arranged in an elegant vase makes this mid-century vanity a highly collectible beauty. The brass was lacquered by the maker and so it will not require any cleaning. The brass has the most delightful patina. The lid decoration is framed by elaborately engraved Tudor roses, leaf motifs and foliage. The interior case contains a large clear bevelled mirror. The inner lid is signed Stratton just under the Compact-in-Hand logo. The self-opening inner lid works perfectly as do all the hinges and catches. The powder well retains the original protective layer of cream coloured enamel. The original presentation box, black felt pouch, leatherette puff and sifter are present. The base is decorated with a design of stars. Measures 3 1/2 inches diameter. Weighs 128.3 grams.
