DESCRIPTION: A fantastic vintage showpiece! This Minaudiere Compact is designed with flair and for the fashion-minded. Made with a hinged brass frame, the front features 8 rows of rhinestones, two mosaic rows of oblong Mother of Pearl (MOP), and an inset with rhinestones. In total, an impressive design with 251 rhinestones and 34 MOP pieces. Wow!

The Minaudiere Compact opens to reveal a brass design with 4 compartments: lipstick (original not included); powder (with original puff); puff compartment; and storage under the hinged mirror. Of a substantial size at 4” x 2-3/4”, the beveled mirror is in excellent condition. The brass shows overall wear equivalent to a piece of this age but does not detract from the unique value or beauty of this item. The Minaudiere Compact has a ‘coil snake’ handle and push button snap-locking closure.

WHY I LIKE IT: Ooh La La! It’s unique, stylish and beautifully vintage. Just add your ID, credit card and business cards to get the weekend started!

Circa: Mid 20th Century

DIMENSIONS: 5-3/8” W x 3” H x ¾” D
