Bakelite Suitcase Compact Cigarette Case with Leather Straps

Bakelite suitcase compact with leather straps. This is a very unique vintage compact. Not only is it a suitcase but it is also made out of Bakelite. The outside has great detail with two leather straps and brass buckles that really hook. Each corner has a brass cover. The inside of this piece is just as amazing. Open the ornate little clasp to find a mirror with an embossed gold-tone frame and a ribbon handle. When lifted you reveal a compartment with a bar to hold your cigarettes, business cards, money or whatever else you might want to carry. Next to the mirror is a rectangular compartment to hold your lipstick. The other side of the compact is divided into four sections where you can hold your makeup, brushes or whatever you like.

This vintage case measures 4 1/8" x 2 1/2" and is 1" deep. It is in very good vintage condition. The only real "flaw" is the handle over the clasp has separated but is completely intact. The mirror is flawless and there if minimal scuffing on this compact case.

A truly unique piece for your collection or purse.
