This beautiful Stratton powder compact has been lightly used and is in fabulous condition. It has a romantic country scene on its lid, depicting a thatched cottage in the countryside. The image is reminiscent of a painting by Constable, and has a figure and farm animals in the foreground. The underside has an all over star design, dating it to between the mid 1950s and the mid 1960s. The push-in clasp opens the compact to reveal the mirror in a wide gold tone frame. The patent number 764125 is inscribed under the mirror, and refers to the inner retaining ring. This large flapjack compact is convertible, and can be used with loose or pressed powder, as the inner ring keeps the pressed powder tray in place. The compact can be used with loose powder, but no longer has its sifter. This vintage compact has its used powder puff and box.
🔸This Stratton compact is in very good used vintage condition.
🔸The mirror gives a clear reflection.
🔸The hinges and clasps all work as they should.
🔸The gold tone lid is bright and shiny, with some light scuffs.
