The most gorgeous unused scarlet enamel Stratton vanity set which was made in the 1960s. It is becoming more and more difficult to source unused vintage vanity sets and therefore we appreciate this piece so much.
It is like going back in time to purchase it from the makers of the Stratton brand, Laughton & Sons Ltd. Both the 'Convertible' compact and the 'Lipview' have lustrous scarlet enamel with a diamond cut gilt stylized star detail. The set is in superb condition. The highly polished brass on both items was coated with a layer of lacquer at the point of manufacture. This means that the set will retain its beautiful appearance and never need to be cleaned. Both items are signed 'Stratton MADE IN ENGLAND' and are fitted with excellent mirrors, which give clear and accurate reflections. The gleaming interior of the compact mirror contains the original puff, sifter, information leaflet, inspection docket and padded paper insert. This compact can accommodate standard size pans of compressed face powder. For example: Max Factor 'Creme Puff', Rimmel 'Stay Matte', Constance Carroll CCUK and Miss Beauty. As this vanity mirror also contains the original sifter it is suitable for use with all types of loose face powder. The 'Lipview' contains the original dummy tube and it can be adjusted to fit any size of lipstick. The compact measures 3" and weighs 91.4 grams. The 'Lipview' measures almost 2 1/2" and weighs 21.5 grams.
