Size: 3” tall by 4” wide by 7/8” deep, with 7” long chain handle.
This tiny, minaudière-sized gold metal 1950s evening bag was designed to hold just the essentials: one compartment contains a powder compact, lipstick case, comb and mirror, while the other compartment originally held cigarettes—and is perfect for a bit of cash and/or ID and credit cards. This dainty vintage “vanity bag” or “dance purse” has a snake chain handle. The outer metal surface is textured to look woven, and combines shiny with satin/matte metal finishes. The bag comes with its original felt storage bag, and appears barely used, if at all. We have removed the original powder insert from the compact, but the previous owner never filled the lipstick holder. It is in very good condition, with some slight scuffing to the metal surface from storage or gentle use, and a tiny bit of powder residue and a few spots of tarnish, inside the compact compartment. Take a night off from your smart phone, and carry this tiny-but-adorable 1950s evening bag to your next party or event!
