More vintage compact mirrors.

This is the most wonderful & highly collectible Stratton "Scone" powder compact. The lid is superb. R.M.S. Caronia was a passenger ship of the Cunard Line & then Cunard White Star Line. Princess Elizabeth launched her on 30th October 1947. She served with Cunard until 1967.

In May 1953 the Caronia made her most famous cruise, associated with the coronation ceremony of Queen Elizabeth II. The ship was used as a hotel, as many of the London hotels were fully booked ahead of the coronation.

The background appears to be foil (metallic gold) and set atop this is the most wonderful enamel scene showing this majestic ship moving through the water. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. The whole compact is in good condition with the original sifter & a very pretty puff. The mirror is excellent & the bezel is signed "STRATTON MADE IN ENGLAND". The inner lid is signed "Stratton". The base is decorated with a fine spiral. Measures 3" & weighs 94.1 grams.

This compact is suitable for use with loose face powder.
