The is probably the best one of these sets you will see. Vintage Stratton powder compacts are known for quality of the enamel decorations and no wonder - this is the most gorgeous Stratton set and it has never been used. Both the powder compact and lipstick holder have high quality enamel decorations - two swans shown in fine detail on a reed bed. There isn't any enamel loss and this set must have sat in a cupboard for the last fifty plus years. The mirror is very good & gives an excellent reflection. The mirror bezel is signed " STRATTON MADE IN ENGLAND". Back in the day these sets were very expensive and given on special occasions like a young lady's twenty first birthday. This is reflected in the high quality materials the makers used. The compact is fitted with a luxurious silk and fabric puff signed 'Stratton MADE IN ENGLAND', a velour edged sifter, instruction leaflet, paper cushion, inspection docket and black felt pouch - all pristine and unused. The base of the compact has the all over star design and it is signed 'Stratton MADE IN ENGLAND'.
This very beautiful 1960s Stratton 'Convertible' powder compact measures 3" and weighs 94.1 grams.
The lipstick holder is just delightful - very beautiful and made with great attention to detail. The enamel on both items is a joy to behold. The original Stratton label in the shape of a red lipstick instructs the new owner to 'Insert our complete Lipstick Refill into the base provided. Alternatively use your complete Lipstick base unit, discarding the base supplied'. The other side of the card reads as follows - 'The Stratton LIPSTICK HOLDER MADE IN ENGLAND'. The end of the lipstick holder is signed 'Stratton No.2 MADE IN ENGLAND'.
The matching lipstick holder measures almost 2 1/4" and weighs 11 grams.
