This convertible powder compact is suitable for both modern loose & pressed face powders.
This is a delightful vintage Stratton "Slim Convertible" with beautiful deep crimson enamel. The whole item is in excellent condition. This compact & all my "convertible" compacts are suitable for use with both loose & pressed modern powders.
Stratton were famed for the quality of their enamel & no wonder. This is such a gorgeous
vintage compact - delightful enamel & the most exquisite roses
& foliage shown in fine detail. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. The mirror is excellent & gives a perfect reflection.
The compact comes with the original velvet pouch & also a sifter in case the new owner wishes to use loose powder. A foam puff & spacer ring are also present so that face powder pans of 57 mm can be housed in this compact when the pacer ring is fitted or 67 mm powder pans (Max Factor Creme Puff) when the brown plastic spacer ring is removed. A lovely clean compact. The base is signed "Stratton" & decorated with vertical lines & tiny chevrons
This very beautiful vintage compact measures 3 1/4".
