Number 12 in our Top Twenty Vintage Stratton Powder Compacts

As seen 'Miller's A Collector's Guide to Powder Compacts' by Juliette Edwards - page 34.

It is so hard to find this compact.

This is a very luxurious compact with black enamel & a silver marcasite set galleon in low relief.

All the marcasite ( pyrite ) stones are in place. The sterling silver set galleon is sound, exquisitely detailed & beautifully executed. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. The self-opening inner lid still works. The pouch, puff & sifter are in good condition. The mirror is excellent and has bevelled edges. Unusually this base does not have the curled feathers - normally the 'Empress' model do. The cardboard box is sturdy & quite good.
