This is a petit-point vanity bag from the forties. It features an oval, black faille bag with petit-point flowers on the front, top zipper and wrist strap. The interior is satin-lined with a mirror inside the lid. Inside the bag there is a petit-point zipper compact, a matching red leather-lined cigarette case with a snap closure and a comb with a tassel in a matching petit-point case. All pieces are trimmed in gold tone piping and are marked "Western Germany". The bag measures 5 1/2" L X 3" D X 4" H (excluding handle). The matching petit-point travel comb and mirror set shown in the last photo is not included but may be purchased separately from my shop.
This fabulous vanity bag is in pristine condition with no visible wear anywhere. This is a must-have for any collector of vintage vanity bags and purses.
