This elegant minaudiere purse features a gold tone finish and is fitted on the inside with a compact and multiple compartments. Both sides features an embossed pattern of concentric squares, with the center of each square set with a square-cut blue rhinestone on one side. A snake chain handle makes it easy to carry.

On one side the interior is fitted with a comb, a compact, a powder puff, a coin holder, a mirror, and space for a lipstick. The other side would have originally been used for cigarettes, but now provides space for credit cards, money, and other small items.

Minaudieres like this were popularized during the Deco era by fine jewelry houses, especially by Van Cleef and Arpels. This gorgeous example can hold its own with these fine pieces.

SIZE: 5-3/8" across x 3-1/8" high x 1" deep

MARKS: "Evans"

AGE: mid-20th century

CONDITION: very good vintage condition with minor signs of wear. It appears that this piece was only worn a few times and reserved for special occasions. Originally there would have been a lipstick case that came with this purse and fitted into the space on the interior, but it has gone AWOL with time.
