This Elgin America Jewelled Carryall Minaudiere Compact Purse must be one of the holy grails of 1950s femininity and glitz and would make a perfect Christmas or Chrismukkah gift.

The top is dazzling. Hand prong set stones are a rainbow of colours and shapes. All stones are original. Purse is not flat, it’s slightly domed and fits perfectly in the hand.

Inside there are 2 deco designed compartments featuring leaping gazelles. The larger one opens to a unused powder well with original sifter and puff. Unused puff has separated from age. Second compartment was probably used for coins. Club shaped form is a money clip and opens outward. Inset mirror swivels open to an engine turned design compartment for a hankie, keys or whatever. Removable lipstick is unused.

In fabulous condition with wear to the high points of the back …. probably from display.

4 1/4” by 2½” by 1½” high.

Layaway available.

Please remember that all our jewelry is pre-owned and the condition is very good to excellent with no evidence of misuse unless stated.
