This Stratton compact is in excellent condition. It opens and closes easily, the inner powder compartment can be opened with the small button or by using the “self opening” lid. To do this, simply open the compact top until the inner lid pops up! The mechanism works very well! The daffodil decoration is unmarred, the mirror is without damage and gives an excellent reflection. The powder lid is marked “Stratton”, the sifter is missing but the powder area is very clean. The bottom of the compact shows some sign of use, it is stamped “Stratton Made in England”. I believe this dates to the early to mid 1960’s.
