10-sided scalloped solid brass Stratton powder compact featuring a lovely enameled black top with a subtly-coloured design. In unused (NOS) condition, this powder compact contains its original black carrying case and both inner Stratton puff & screen. Made in England in the 50's or 60's, this compact measures 3" across from clasp to hinge.
Stratton compacts have a special trick for opening, where you can push the mirrored top back (after opening the compact) to pop open the inner hinged gold powder cover - this was designed for easy one-handed operation. Inside the compact is an unused pink circular puff with a gold script 'Stratton' printed on it, and underneath that is a perfectly unused screen. A gold toned brass body is emboldened with a colourful floral pattern motif, while the bottom of the compact has an engraved pattern of stars.
Condition: New, new-old-stock.
