This is the most gorgeous Stratton set and it has never been used. Both the powder compact and lipstick holder have high quality diamond cut floral motifs. The gilt lids are also decorated with an etched design that the makers named 'Linen'.
This powder compact is suitable for use with loose and pressed / solid face powder or as a handbag mirror. The lipstick holder / mirror will hold all sizes of lipstick.
There aren't any signs of use. This set must have sat in a cupboard for approximately forty years. The mirror is very good & gives an excellent reflection. 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 topped puff signed 'Stratton MADE IN ENGLAND', a velour edged sifter and an instruction leaflet. The base of the compact has a design of engraved chevrons and vertical lines and it is signed 'Stratton MADE IN ENGLAND'.
This very beautiful 1970s Stratton 'Convertible' powder compact measures 3" and weighs 92.7 grams.
The lipstick holder "Lipview" is just delightful - very beautiful and made with great attention to detail. The gilt diamond cut design on both items is a joy to behold. The original Stratton "dummy tube" is still in place and written on it are instructions (in English and French) detailing how to use this lipstick holder with all sizes of lipsticks. The "Lipview" is signed "Stratton MADE IN ENGLAND REG. DES. 934048"
The matching "Lipview" measures almost 2 1/2" and weighs 18.8 grams.
The original presentation case is in excellent condition. The interior lid is signed 'Stratton' and the interior base is lined with pristine pale yellow satin like material which covers the recesses which house the compact and lipstick holder.
