Vintage powder compact with integral lipstick tube by Stratton. Made in England.
c1950s-1960s era.
Goldtone metal. Rectangular shape with gently curved edges.The top has a textured surface with a small blank cartouche intended for someone's initials. The top edges have an embossed scroll pattern in the metal. The underneath has a stylised floral or leaf pattern. The lipstick tube has a simple textured surface and 'Stratton No1' stamped on the bottom. The tube is fixed in place at the top by a hinge.
Inside is a mirror; a metal flap with Stratton Compact-in-Hand motif on it with a striped pattern; and a powder mesh. No powder. No puff. The flap-catch opens automatically when the compact top is fully opened back. Nice mechanism!

Size 8.3cm across the middle , about 3 1/4 inch.

Condition:
Hinges and catches in working order.
Exterior: The top has a few small spots ot tarnish and light wear. Side edges very good. Underneath has light wear and a couple of small blemishes. The lipstick tube has some slight marks and a couple of dings in the metal.
Interior: Mirror very good and clean. Goldtone rims/edges have a few spots and scuffs. Flap is very good (there is a slight wavy mark on the right-hand-side of the flap but I think this is from manufacture as it has a uniform appearance.) The flap-catch sits at a slight angle but works fine. Mesh used but very good. Powder well has powder marks in it.
The inside of the lipstick tube appears to be unused.
