About me

I’m Jane and I’m a vintage compact collector and product designer.  I live in Yorkshire, England with my husband and two little boys, William (Billy) and Joseph (Joe).

My company VANROE began as the online specialist in powder compacts, and was featured in magazines like The Telegraph, The Stylist and Homes & Antiques magazine. I am now working on my own collection of beauty gifts and accessories, made with traditional British manufacturers.

    Jane, I have a Stratton compact that has never been used. There is an S.S. United States insignia on the cover with an eagle on a flag. The back is gold. I would like to sell it but have no idea of its value. Would you be familiar with this.
