Stratton started making powder compacts and handbag mirrors in 1923. With a new found freedom for the application of cosmetic products in public and the increasing mobility and affluence of consumers in the late 1940's, Stratton soon developed a range of attractively decorated cosmetic accessories for the handbag, including lip stick holders powder compacts, mirrors, cigarette cases and pill boxes. Glamorised by stars of the silver screen, Stratton became the must have personal accessory of the day.
The increasing influence of mineral powders and the continued need for functional and attractive handbag accessories for make up on the move, make Stratton as relevant today as it has always been.
