This compact is suitable for use with both modern loose & pressed / solid face powder or as a handbag mirror.
This is such a beautiful unused 1970s Stratton 'Mini-Convertible' powder compact.
It is not often that we find gold plated Stratton powder compacts. This one is beautiful and we do not see this lid decoration often. The lid is gold plated & decorated with the most gorgeous high quality etched design. Set atop this gold plated studs joined together to form an eye-catching zig zag which shimmers in the light. In the middle a diamond shaped cartouche. Such a pleasing composition with no loss of design. The lid lifts to reveal an excellent mirror which gives a good accurate reflection. The whole compact is gilt & will not require any cleaning at all as it is protected with a layer of lacquer that will prevent tarnishing. The original box, black pouch, silk & foam puff, velour edged sifter and instruction leaflet are in place and they are also in superb condition. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. The base is decorated with all over stars and signed " Stratton MADE IN ENGLAND ".
This gold plated vintage Stratton compact measures 3" & weighs 98 grams.
