This gorgeous 1960s Stratton " Convertible" compact has never been used. It is in excellent new old stock (NOS) condition. Just like going back in the day and purchasing over the counter. The lid is decorated with an etched pattern named by the makers as 'Linen'. It does look like golden linen. The lid is also adorned with one of the most quintessentially British flowers - Rosa canina (the dog rose). There isn't any loss of design & it is signed by the artist 'ERIKA'. The lid lifts to reveal an excellent mirror, which gives an accurate reflection. The whole compact was coated at the point of manufacture with a layer of lacquer which prevents tarnishing & so this accessory will never need to be cleaned. The powder well is stamped with the patent number '764125'. The powder well is lined with original protective card insert. The base is signed "Stratton MADE IN ENGLAND'.
Gleaming & clean this would make a perfect gift.
This unused compact mirror measures 3" and weighs 95.6 grams & it is suitable for both modern loose & pressed face powders.
