An extremely rare Stratton "Scone without Inner Lid". The Stratton "Scones without Inner Lids were documented in a 1948 Stratton advertisement but they were not listed in catalogues in the 1950s or else where. Some of the  "Scones without Inner Lids" were decorated with printed silk which was rendered to look like an oil-painting. This is one such. A very elegant lady clad in fur trimmed winter clothing is holding on to her bonnet. The bare tree branches and silhouette of a large house in the distance contrasting with her pale skin, red lips and bonnet. The textured printing does look like an oil painting and you just have to marvel at skill of the artisans & crafts people employed by this firm for the huge range of lid decorations and styles of vanities produced. The compact opens to reveal a good clear mirror. The mirror bezel is signed " STRATTON MADE IN ENGLAND ". The shallow powder well is gilded. The base is decorated with a fine spiral.

This vintage powder compact measures 3".
