This Stratton Muffin compact is embellished with gorgeous green and gold enamel adorned with a design known by the makers as Panels of Horned Flower Baskets. The design was inspired by the Wall - Davis period (1751-1783) Worcester porcelain. Each panel contains birds of paradise. Gilt horns can be seen surrounding the panels. All the original accessories are present - box, pouch, puff, sifter, guarantee rosette and information leaflets. This lovely accessory is hard to find. The Stratton Muffin only has three known years of availability (different lid designs) 1948, 1952 and 1953. The catches and hinges work perfectly. The compact is signed STRATTON MADE IN ENGLAND. The mirror gives a good and accurate reflection. The base is also enamelled. There does not appear to be any loss of enamel or fading. Measures 9 cm. Weighs 132.4 grams.
