 Vintage Stratton Compacts Page 1

 

 Stratton compacts were designed and produced in Birmingham, England by Laughton & Sons Ltd.  from 1923.  Some of the earliest Stratton compacts carry the name "Stratnoid", which was also the trade name for the company's knitting needles.  In 1940, four of their five factories were destroyed during World War II.  By 1946, they were up and running again.  In 1997, this company was taken over by Cork International.  Although they are still making compacts with the Stratton name, they are no longer manufactured in Britain.  The compacts I am carrying were all made prior to 1997.

 These are my favorite compacts.   There are so many designs to choose from and all are well made and classy. The compacts I am offering for sale on this page are all Stratton and are all in excellent condition.  They may have been used previously - I will let you know that in my description - but they are still in excellent to pristine shape with intact mirrors and are suitable for personal use or gift-giving

 Guys - you can't go wrong giving a gorgeous compact as a gift to your lady!!

This gold tone Stratton compact features a lid done in that wonderful translucent blue that Stratton did so well.  There are brilliant orange flowers with green and purple leaves - very striking! The mirror is clear and intact.  This is a convertible compact more suitable for pressed powder or solid makeup as it has no inner lid.  The sifter is present.  Only the puff fabric is left as the rest has disintegrated with age.  The outer clasp is secure.  This piece has a diameter of  3".  Pristine, unused condition.
