The most adorable 1950s Stratton London scenes souvenir powder compact which has not been used. All loose foundation including Clinique and No7 are suitable for this compact mirror. The lid is decorated with lovely cream enamel which is embellished with the major London landmarks depicted in a gilt finish.
The camera has not managed to capture the gilt finish of the lid decorations.
This compact is part of the line that the maker crafted to commemorate the coronation of HM Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. The crown worn at the coronation (St. Edward's crown) is depicted on a cushion on the lower right. A Yeoman Warder, Westminster Abbey, London Bridge, Piccadilly, a London theatre, St Paul's Cathedral and the Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain are shown in golden enamel.
The whole compact is gleaming clean and will not require any cleaning, as it is protected by a coat of clear enamel applied by the makers to prevent damage and tarnishing. The catches and hinges work well. The mirror gives a good and accurate reflection. Measures 3 inches diameter. Weighs 89 grams.
All the original accessories are present - the presentation box, felt pouch, guarantee rosette, signed puff and sifter. They are in super unused condition, as is the compact.
