A  wonderful rare Stratton vanity in excellent condition! We have all seen the Stratton 'Scone' model which is fitted with an inner lid. However, this is another model of 'Scone' entirely, which was made without an inner lid. This model is rare and only documented in 1948. The 1948 'Scone without Inner Lid' model sometimes had lids made from silk. As the silk lids were often not protected by a cover, those few that were produced were often ruined because the owners did not use the pouch to protect them. This means very few of the small amount that were made are still around today. From year to year we do not see this model come up for sale and then this little gem appears! It is divine! The most quintessentially English scene you could imagine. This scene is hand painted silk. It looks like an oil painting. A timbered cottage set within the most delightful and typical cottage garden. The borders a profusion of native British plants. A neat path leads up to the front door. The cottage has tiny leaded windows, a plain green wooden door and what appear to be salmon pink and pale yellow walls.  Some of the roof tiles are covered in moss. Behind the dwelling tall trees complete the scene. The imagery captures the peaceful rural idyll of mid-century England perfectly.  There isn't any loss of design or fading. The edge of the lid has an engine turned design. 

Lift the lid & you will see an excellent mirror which gives a clear and accurate reflection. The mirror bezel is signed "STRATTON MADE IN ENGLAND". There is a white velour edged sifter in the powder well. The powder well is gilded. The base is decorated with a fine spiral. Measures 3" and weighs 64.3 grams.
