This beautiful early 1950's powder compact is by Stratton, England and features a riverside scene of kingfishers and a dragonfly on a grey blue ground.

The compact's size, colour and shape makes this a fairly rare compact. This is a petite vintage treasure measuring in at 2 3/4 inches, making it the perfect size for smaller handbags.

Engraved 'Made in England' to the mirror frame and has the Stratton patented 'compact in hand' logo to the powder well lid (this logo dates from 1948 so if you see it in compacts being sold as 1930's you know they're a later compact). The compact in hand mechanism automatically opens the powder well door when you pull the mirror back, saving you damaging your nails. This is for loose face powder, available at most major beauty brands.

Condition: Overall good, hinges etc work well. The lid enamel and base have wear and there's a few marks inside but it has a nice clear mirror and is a lovely piece in the rarer blue grey colour way and size.

Details: Stratton was a British powder compact brand popular from 1923, when it was founded, until the 1980s. The original company folded in the 1990s. The bird series of compacts were popular in the 1950s and 60s and very collectible today due to their attractive imagery.

All vintage items have been pre-used, unless stated otherwise, and may have gentle signs of wear.
