This is a rare mid-century Stratton Piccadilly loose powder compact in good condition.
There were only two known years of availability for the Piccadilly - 1959 & 1960. This is the only Stratton compact model with the lucky four leaf clover shape. The beautiful enamel with gilt accents in the elegant quatrefoil design is so elegant. Each edge of the lid has an indented gilt border to form the quatrefoil design. The compact comes with the original black felt pouch and sifter. The mirror gives an excellent clear reflection. All catches and hinges work perfectly. The base is decorated with the fine spiral. Measures 3" & weighs 94.4 grams.
The are no losses of the coloured enamel. However, the top coat of clear enamel near the thumb catch has a small area of loss which is unusual as this enamel is so durable. Please see image four. The biro is pointing at the area of clear enamel loss.
