Vintage Stratton Powder Compacts ...

http://www.arabellabianco.co.uk/bits-and-bobs-html/vintage-daffodil-iris-compact-Stratton.html We have our first compact in stock! It's a convertible compact by Stratton with a daffodil and iris design, for solid make-up or loose powder. The star design on the base dates it from the mid 1950s to mid 1960s. A lovely compact in unused condition! http://www.arabellabianco.co.uk/bits-and-bobs-html/vintage-daffodil-iris-compact-Stratton.html
How glamorous to take a compact from your bag instead of any old mirror! Here's a great blog post about Stratton compacts http://twenty-something-sherbet.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/vintage-dating-stratton-powder-compacts.html
