Volupte was founded in 1926 in Elizabeth, New Jersey. They produced compacts, purses, atomizers, pill boxes, cigarette cases, and for a very short time jewelry. They were bought out in 1957 by Shields Inc.
This beautiful Volupte purse is known as a carryall. The outer case is a stiff fabric with a side snap enclosure for additional storage. The inner case is in a gold tone on metal with the front being embellished with green, blue, pink, and clear rhinestones set in silver tone. Very Striking! When opened the case displays a 2 sided reflective mirror that also has a spring that allows it to be opened to another storage compartment. There is a powder case with a slide clasp. Powder is still in case and the original marked powder puff is there, There is another cloth bag above the powder that has a lift top for access. Above the bag, is the lipstick holder that slides out. It contains the original lipstick. This is a lightly used purse if used at all. In Excellent condition. Any dark spots are from reflections. The case is bright! It measures 5 1/2 inches by 3 1/4 inches. This is one of the prettiest carryalls I have ever come across. Thank you for viewing this lovely item.
