The " Lipstick Compact " was only available in 1957 & 1958. The lid has a delightful engine turned design with a central cartouche & the lipstick container matches perfectly. The base is equally eye-catching with the Stratton " curled feathers " design which was reserved for the luxury range of Stratton compacts. The original sifter is present it is a little fragile. The mirror is good & clear & the whole item is in excellent condition & working order. The mirror bezel is signed " Stratton " & inscribed with numerous tiny patent numbers too small to read with the naked eye & then " MADE IN ENGLAND." The inner lid is decorated with parallel lines & the " Compact - in - Hand " logo to show this is fitted with a self-opening inner lid which works perfectly every time the mirror is tilted backwards.
This lipstick duo measures 3 5/16" X 2 3/16" & weighs 117.6 grams.
