A brass cigarette case from the 1950s featuring Fragonard's 18th century Painting "The Sermon of Love". Beautiful and still bright enamel on the front depicts the painting; there are a few specks of enamel loss not evident in the photos which don't distract from its beauty and are hardly noticeable. The back has the signature star embossing that Stratton used during the early 1950s. Scalloped edge. The inside originally was made to hold "regular' cigarettes with an arm that when twisted down would also hold "King" sized cigarettes. This case is terrific for holding business cards, etc. My daughter, who is a Oboe player, uses one to hold her reeds. Wonderful condition with some wear consistent with an item 67 years old.
Measures 3-1/2" x 3"; it is 1/4" deep.
Marked - Stratton
