Vintage Mother of Pearl Minaudiere with Aqua Rhinestones
This lovely piece, currently called a minaudiere, previously called a necessaire – for carrying all the necessary items a woman needs, a carryall, or even a vanity purse is from the early 50's created by Evans Case Company. This carryall is mother of pearl – snail shell with Aqua Swarovski rhinestone crown design.
Measuring 5.55" x 3.25" by 1.12", it opens and closes easily with compartments on both sides. Definitely chic and elegant looking, it is complete with its comb, space for lipstick powder puff (puff lightly used, but original), and pale yellow felt sleeper bag. Wonderfully accommodating, it features a slot for coins, a cigarette case, a money bar, powder compartment, full lid mirror, enough room for a key or two, a credit card, ID and business cards.
Excellent vintage condition. Some slight scratches from wear, no chips or cracks to the mother of pearl. It has been used, this is still some loose powder in the case.
