Shipping to United States: $18.21

This lovely gold tone Stratton is a stylish Empress shape, and beautifully made. It has an engine turned lid, with curls decorating the edge and a blank cartouche. The base has a curled leaf design, which was used on Stratton’s more luxurious compacts during the 1950's. Opening the compact reveals the mirror, and allows access to the lipstick. The lipstick holder looks like it has never contained lipstick. The self opening inner lid to the powder well has Stratton's "compact in hand" logo engraved in the centre. This compact has its used sifter for use with loose powder, and used puff.
