Evans Gold Tone Hard Case Minaudiere
Before mobile phones, the favourite evening bag of the 1950's socialite was a hard case Evans Case Co. minaudiere with efficient compartments for the must haves of the night; lipstick, powder, comb, cigs, a mirror and some coins for the attendant in the powder room. Somehow we still require all those items but our need to be in constant touch with the world has rendered these beautiful objects to the world of collectors. This excellent almost pristine condition bag with original box is a great example. Subtle ridged pattern on the exterior, hatched pattern on the interior with a lush gold tone snake chain handle and half a dozen faux sapphires imbedded on the front. Interior so clean and polished it appears to have not be used for any occasion. The perfect display piece for a vanity table or hanging on the wall with similar objects from the high life of the 1950's. 5.5" x 3" x 1".
