Vintage Stratton Compact Lipstick Set Flamingo Bird Scene 1960s


A scarce and beautiful Stratton compact mirror and lipstick tube set. This 1960s vanity set comes with the original presentation box, luxury puff, velour edged sifter, both black felt pouches, instruction leaflets and padded cushion insert.  The cobalt blue enamel is embellished with enchanting flamingos. Both items are in good condition. The mirror gives a good and accurate reflection. The base of the compact 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.

Both items are gleaming clean. There aren't any traces of face powder or lipstick residue.

The Stratton Convertible powder compact measures 3 inches diameter and weighs 94.4 grams.

This compact is ideal for all loose foundation and standard sizes of pressed powder.

For example:

Rimmel Stay Matte

Rimmel Natural Bronzer

Rimmel Kind & Free

Max Factor Creme Puff

Constance Carroll & Miss Beauty


There is a slight pin head area on the enamel of the compact which is a little bit thicker than the rest of the cobalt blue enamel.

The lipstick holder is just delightful - very beautiful and made with great attention to detail.

The original instruction leaflet in the shape of a red lipstick instructs the new owner to:

Insert into this base your complete Lipstick Refill. If it fits loosely, slightly push inwards the three LARGE 'U' SHAPED PRONGS to ensure firm grip.  

The other side of the card reads as follows - The Stratton LIPSTICK HOLDER.

The end of the lipstick holder is signed Stratton No.2. It measures almost 2 1/4 inches long and weighs 10.3 grams.
