The clean interior has a lovely clear reflective mirror with the original unused sifter and puff. Top of the delightful puff is silky and signed Stratton. The sponge base is thin so I have included a complimentary new puff should the recipient choose to use as originally intended. The base is an all-over star design with central Stratton name.

The decals and stickers are known to be fragile, however after 70 years they are surprisingly in very good condition with only very minor signs of wear on one or two.

This quality novelty compact is shaped like a pocket camera of the 30s period. It is brass with tooled leather detail in beautiful shades of gold red, blue and black on a cream background. The powder compartment opens by pressing the “shutter button” which activates the sprung lid revealing a clear reflective mirror, empty powder well with lovely original fitted sifter and small unused but aged worn puff. The “film winder knob” is the empty lipstick holder, which slides out by turning the knob. Next to the powder compartment is a small brass key stamped REUGE STE CROIX which has a long renowned history for making quality, Swiss musical movements dating back to 1865. When the key is turned very gently, just a couple of times only (to avoid over winding) the very tiny brass knob next to the key is gently lifted and the music begins to play, which I believe is the charming 'Viennese Waltz.' The cigarette case is on the reverse of the compact, which opens by lifting the side clip. The interior is clean and space for five cigarettes.
The compact is stamped GERMANY on the lid rim of the powder compartment just above the mirror.
This exceptional vintage vanity is overall, including all working mechanisms, in good condition - possibly never used. There are some expected minimal signs of age wear i.e., to the " film winder knob" which otherwise has been very well protected by the original (now worn and tired) box for over 90 years.
Stunning vintage vanity for use/ display and enjoyed by the discerning collector of increasingly scarce quality novelty compacts.
