Vintage Goldtone 1950's Retro Glam Minaudière

Vintage Goldtone 1950's Retro Glam Minaudière

SKU: 14

Oh, this little minaudière made us giddy when I found it! We've never seen anything like it, and were drawn to it because of the decoration; it hit all our favorites: pearls, shells, and flowers! Perfect for a lady for an evening out, this compact purse has a space for pressed powder, lipstick, a comb, and cigarettes and has a mirror so you can see how you're holding up. It's got a sort of Tiki glam, and I guarantee that you'll not see another coming and going when you carry it!

Very good vintage condition. Taking into account that this little gem is over 60 years old, we'd give it excellent vintage condition but will stick with very good; there is some minor discoloration from what looks like maybe tape (though we're not sure why it would be taped... the clasps work perfectly) being used and taken off at the top. There is minor patina around the edges and on the back as well, as shown in the photos. This is just such a beautiful piece, we know it will live another fabulous lifetime!
