Rare Stratton Queen with complete inner lid King Louis Henri III
Royal themed powder compacts
Number eight in our all time Top Twenty Stratton Powder Compacts.
The most superb enamel Stratton " Queen." Just about everybody is familiar with the Stratton " Queen Convertible " that had a production run of of four decades but this is a " Queen " with an full inner lid. The known years of availability are 1957 & 1958.
The presence of a complete inner lid in a " Queen " is descibed as very rare by the most respected Stratton expert Juliette Edwards. This is just wonderful even the costumes are accurate & the compact oozes quality & it is in perfect working order. The enamel is very detailed & it is such a charming and romantic scene. The whole compact is superb & there is no enamel loss what-so-ever. We have only ever seen two "Queens with full inner lids" with this scene. However, both were different in a way as this has a uniform crackle glaze all over the enamel, which is wonderful! Surrounding the gorgeous enamel is high quality brass which has stylized roses, leaves & the most delightful decorations. The lid opens to reveal an excellent beveled mirror with the original sticker in place.The mirror bezel is marked " MADE IN ENGLAND."
The inner lid is signed " Stratton " & shows the " Compact-in-Hand " logo. This mechanism works perfectly every time. The original sifter is present & also a very unusual Stratton puff. The base is decorated with the all over star design.
This highly collectible powder compact measures 3 1/2 and weighs 129.3 grams.
