Rare Stratton Compact 1948 Silk / 12th Wedding Anniversary Gift

£325.00

A breath taking beauty! A rare mid-century Stratton powder compact. 

This is a 1948 Stratton Scone without Inner Lid. The exquisitely beautiful lid is silk which has been rendered to look like an oil painting. No wonder the Stratton brand has such a following. This is an extraordinary and remarkable gift for discerning collectors of vanities or a one of a kind gift to show how much you appreciate your wife on the day of your anniversary. The silk lid makes this an appropriate 12th (silk) wedding anniversary gift, when only something rather special will do. This remarkable compact mirror is all the more appealing as it comes with the original accessories. There isn't any loss of design or fading. 

As you can see from the images this lovely accessory depicts a typically English still life painting composition. Such great attention to detail. Fuchsias, pink roses, ox-eye daisies and deep green foliage contrast against the black background. The pale yellow vase is just as accurately portrayed as the floral display - the right hand side of it is darker to show the shadow cast by the over hanging fuchsias and foliage. Lift the lid & you will see an excellent mirror which gives a clear and accurate reflection.

The mirror bezel is signed STRATTON MADE IN ENGLAND. The original box, felt pouch, guarantee rosette & sifter are in place. So too is the original signed puff, which is so adorable! Measures 3 inches diameter. Weighs 65.9 grams.

This compact is suitable for loose foundation or as a cherished collectible.
