Rare Stratton ballerina compacts ballerina themed Stratton lipstick mirror / holder 1950s

£550.00

 An extraordinarily rare 1950s enamel Stratton ballet themed lipstick mirror. This is the first time we have seen a Stratton lipstick mirror adorned with a ballet scene.The ballerina portrayed is Violetta Elvin.  The lipstick mirror is in superb condition & it comes with the original presentation box which is in very good condition. The enamel scene is enchanting - an exquisitely beautiful scene which does not have any enamel fading or loss. The scene is framed by a white border all the way around which you will be able to see on images one, two and three.

We have included three photographs of the lid to show how delightful it is - all three photos of the lid are taken close-up to show how good the enamel is. Originally this scene was taken from a photograph by the society photographer Baron & it bears his signature. The lid shows the ballerina Violetta Elvin dancing in 'Sleeping Beauty'. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. The mirror is excellent & it gives a perfect reflection. The top of the lipstick holder is signed " Stratton PAT. No 653293 ". The base of the lipstick holder is signed " Stratton No2 ". Image four is showing some reflections on the handle. Measures just over 11.5 cm and weighs 36.1 grams.
