Unused Silver Plated Stratton Bird Series Makeup Compact 1970s


We have run out of stock for this item.

A super unused silver plated Stratton bird series makeup compact, crafted by the premier maker in the 1970s. The lid is decorated with an engraved design that the maker named 'Linen' and it does look like silver linen. Two delightful birds perched on a Dog-rose bush adorn the lid. They look a little like nuthatches. The colours are as vibrant as the day this vanity was made. The decoration bears the artist's signature 'Joffre'. There isn't any loss of design and the whole compact is in very good condition. This model is known as the 'Shell Convertible'. It is shaped like a clam shell. The interior contains the original pristine protective paper insert and a good clear mirror which gives an accurate reflection. The mirror bezel and powder well surround are lacquered brass which is a deep rich gold, which is such a delightful contrast to the silver plated hinge and exterior case. Measures 3 1/8 inch (80 mm) wide and weighs 82.3 grams. This compact is presented with an immaculate pouch. All standard sizes (67 mm diameter) of pressed powder are suitable for this compact.
