Elgin American Gold Gazelle Carryall Compact Dance Purse Necessaire Minaudière
Fabulous vintage 1940's-1950's goldtone carryall compact dance purse necessaire minaudière with a gazelle pattern on both the outside and inside. It has a mirror, powder case with a sifter and a puff marked Elgin American, pill box (or for a miniature perfume/scent bottle), lipstick compartment with lipstick, tissue holder and cigarette case behind the mirror. Included is a small folded turquoise booklet explaining the case - "Exquisite Haven for all of your Vanity Valuables", "All in One, All for you," sheer convenience! The exciting Carryall conceals your personal essentials for beauty's sake - all in one chic chest. First in style... first in design - the Carryall is fashion-perfect for all your gala events." This case has never been used and is in excellent condition, with the exception of some tiny deterioration at the bottom right corner of the mirror.
