The International Police Association IPA vintage Stratton compact


 A beautiful enamel vintage Stratton "Mini-Convertible" compact mirror. No wonder Stratton were famed for the quality of their enamel. The enamel is superb. All clasps & hinges work well. Stratton were commissioned to make this for The International Police Association (IPA). The I.P.A. is the largest organisation for police officers in the world.

'The founder Arthur Troop (1914–2000), a police sergeant, was born in Lincoln, in the English county of Lincolnshire.

The association was founded on 1 January 1950 under the Esperanto motto on its emblem, Servo per Amikeco (Service through Friendship), to create friendly links and encourage cooperation between individual police officers around the world.' - this paragraph was taken from Wikipedia. As you can see the I.P.A.'s logo is set atop. The mirror is very good & it gives an excellent reflection. The base is decorated with vertical lines & tiny chevrons.

This vintage compact measures 3".
