Scarce Stratton Early Wafer Powder Compact

1939

This compact was a little confusing but I am certain its an early Wafer.

The size is correct 7cm x 5.7cm, The hinge & clasp placement are also correct and the puff is one that came with this particular compact. The only thing confusing me is that it does not have ridged walls. Any correction is welcome.

 

Green Enamel front & back with 3 gold stripes to either side of the lid. 

Comes with puff & pouch.

 

Overall condition for age is fair. As you can see it has some enamel touch up to the lid and also along the hinge side to the back. Exterior clasp in good working order and inner lid catch needs a firm push to close. 1 side not quite flush. 

Mirror with a few minor blemishes. The puff was attached to the undeeside of the inner lid, I have carefully removed but as you can see even after gentle cleaning there is some green residue to the lid and in the well.
