An exquisitely beautiful vintage Stratton "Petite" powder compact. This compact is suitable for use with modern loose face powder or as a handbag mirror. This is a high quality hand painted enamel 1960s powder compact in super condition. The lid has the most beautiful enamel signed by the artist Suzy Seriau - a bouquet of two dusky pink roses & one golden rose surrounded by foliage with autumnal hues. The enamel is a joy to behold & there isn't any loss or fading. The gilt border of the lid frames this delightful floral composition beautifully. This model of compact was described by the makers of the Stratton brand as 'slim & dainty with a gilt fancy shaped edge'. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. The inner lid is decorated with the 'Compact-in-Hand' logo which shows this compact is fitted with an automatic opening lid - just tilt the mirror back to activate it & the inner lid will open. The mirror is excellent & gives a clear accurate reflection. The original puff & sifter are in place which means this compact may still be used with loose face powder. The black felt pouch is also present. The base is decorated with the famous all over star design this information together with the model of compact dates this Statton 'Petite' to having been made between 1960 - 1965.
This vintage compact mirror measures almost 2 5/8" & weighs 62.6 grams.
