    How do you store all your compacts Jane? I like the silver plated Stratton compact with roses 1970’s and my absolute fav from what appears here is the Stratton vintage rose compact by Erika. Having said that they are all works of art.

      I store some of my compacts on display on little plastic stands made for displaying plates. The others are stacked in drawers, protected individually in lock-top plastic bags. The bags mean I can stack them together without the risk of scratching!

      I love the Erika designs too. They’re striking, and sit on just the right side of English twee!
