Vintage 1970's Emerald Green Marble Finish Stratton of England Mirrored Compact.
Stratton was initially founded in Birmingham England, as Stratnoid ( a knitting needle company) in 1860. A merge with Jarrett, Rainsford and Laughton Ltd, in 1920 was the beginning of the Stratton name and the start of their venture into the compact business. They were the patent holders of the original self opening, inner lid and over they years delved into accessories and jewelry production. Along the way they purchased, Kigu and Mascot, 2 of their strongest competitors in the compact market. The company closed in 1997 but has since reopened, continuing to produce compacts to this day.
This pretty compact measures 3" in diameter and shows only minimal wear around the top edge of the mirror. I have cleaned out the powder and original screen.
Marked "Stratton" on the inside lid and "Made in England" on the top edge of the mirror.
Very good vintage condition.
