Quantity available: 1

Stylish vintage 1940's-1950's silvertone carryall compact dance purse necessaire minaudière with gold scrollwork on the front and an area that can be engraved with initials.  The interior has a gazelle pattern on the two compartment doors for a powder case and pill box (or a miniature perfume/scent bottle).  The powder case has a sifter and a puff marked Elgin American.  It also has a mirror which serves as a lid to the back side cigarette compartment.  The lipstick compartment has a lipstick engraved Beauty Counselor which is not original to the case, and it holds a half stick of red lipstick.  There is also a small tissue holder area.  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.  There is some light scratching on the exterior, and a small dent near the back hinge, and a little bit of deterioration on the mirror.  The rest of the interior is in excellent condition.
