Makeover Magic minaudiere

1 in stock

This 1950's clutch dance purse is made from brass with mother of pearl tiles on the front and a gold tone chain strap. Most of these were made by Mayhill but never marked and instead had a sticker or tag which was usually removed at point of purchase. The inside contains everything you could need for an evening out - before cell phones, that is. One one side there is a blush pan which is clean and empty awaiting a refill. There is also a built in lipstick tube which still holds its original red lipstick and a third compartment with a mini celluloid comb inside a fabric envelope case. On the other side is a mirror with a divot for easy lifting to hold a pack of cigarettes behind it. Modern cigarettes may not fit but it's the perfect place to stash ID, credit cards, and cash. 

The brass has moderate wear consistent with age but there are no missing mother of pearl tiles or broken parts. Difficult to find in this condition with all of the interior guts complete.

All measurements are approximate and taken from the exterior unless noted.

Compartment behind mirror (measured interior): 4 and 1/8" wide and 0.25" deep
Blush pan (measured interior): 2.5" long, 2" wide, and  1/8" deep
Chain drop: 4.5"
Thickness: 0.75"
Length: 3"
Width: 5.25"
