The M31 gallery of reverse plastic:

1957 Standard SR-F22, 1958 Standard "Mignon"

both cabinets 4 3/8"H x 2 3/4"W x 1 1/4"D

The SR-F22 was Standard's first shirtpocket -- and the example above was one of the first SR-F22s, with a serial number under 250 (!)

In terms of cabinet design, the Standard "Mignon" was a huge improvement in every possible way over the SR-F22. A much better plastic was used for the cabinet itself, with a much more lustrous and appealing shade of green; the tuning dial was spared that awful dark green plastic rim; and the cabinet / grill face was given a less zany and more dignified styling.

And as the Lafayette advertisement below from the June, '58 Radio & TV News shows, the Standard "Mignon" also appeared with a Lafayette logo...
