We are all familiar with Stratton's wonderful "Scones" first manufactured from 1948 with inner lids but this is so rare. It is a "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. The "Scones without Inner Lids" were sometimes decorated with printed silk which was produced to look just like an oil-painting. This is one of these rare vanities. The silk lid has the most enchanting image of a young girl preparing for her ballet class. The lid does indeed look like an oil painting. Lift the lid & you will see an excellent mirror. The mirror bezel is signed "STRATTON MADE IN ENGLAND". The powder well is gilded. The base is decorated with a fine spiral just like the "Scones".
This vintage powder compact measures 3".
