Rare Stratton Glamorizer Powder Compact Boxed Unused 1956 For Max Factor Creme Puff


A rare unused boxed Stratton 'Glamorizer (Later)' powder compact. This delightful vanity was known to be available in 1956. Thanks to the work of vanities expert Juliette Edwards we know this model with a thumb catch that is fixed rather than sprung dates to 1956. Just like the 'Glamorizer (Early)' it has a removable gilt rim which secures the powder pan. The 'Glamorizers' were made for pressed face powder and this one is ideal for Max Factor Creme Puff, Rimmel Stay Matte, CCUK & Miss Beauty. The compact is in super condition. The lid has a stylish engine turned design. The interior case contains a good mirror with the original mirror sticker, which reads 'REAL ENGINE-TURNED FRONT'. The mirror bezel is signed 'STRATTON MADE IN ENGLAND'. The powder well is coated with golden enamel. This model has a slot in the base to facilitate the easy removal of the used powder pan. It is so good to find this mid-century compact in the original box with the original puff and pouch. The box has the item code '317/ET'. The catch and hinge work perfectly. The base is decorated with circular bands of stars. Measures 7.3 cm diameter and weighs 70 grams.
