Rare Stratton Piccadilly powder compact
Rare vintage powder compacts
Number nine in our all time Top Twenty Stratton Powder Compacts.
This compact is a rare collector's piece.
This is a rare mid-century Stratton 'Piccadilly' loose powder compact in superb condition! There were only two known years of production 1959 & 1960 & this is the only Stratton compact with the lucky four leaf clover shape. I was delighted to find this just because it was this model with no enamel loss. Then when I examined the enamel close up I realized what a tremendous find this is. The most beautiful enamel with gilt accents - the elegant quatrefoil design so splendid to see. The enamel decoration shows work of the highest calibre - tiny hand painted flowers surrounded by cream enamel set off by gilded borders, the turquoise borders the perfect colour /color contrast. This is a very rare opportunity to acquire one of the rarest Stratton models in super condition. Each edge of the lid has a gilt border which is indented to form the quatrefoil design. The mirror gives a good clear reflection - just a couple of subtle age spots on the mirror glass which in no way spoil the enjoyment of this vanity. The inner lid bears the 'Compact-in-Hand' logo & the automatic opening mechanism works perfectly every time. I am so happy to find the original puff & sifter in the powder well & the compact has been well protected by the original felt pouch. The base is decorated with the fine spiral.
This vintage compact mirror measures 3" & weighs 94.4 grams.
