This is a vintage (40's or 50's), aqua and gold tone, evening clutch and compact. If you open it to the right, there is a mirror, comb, area for pressed powder, pink application pad (both clean and in new condition), and an empty lipstick case. If you open the compact to the left, there is a little arm that can swing out. You could carefully store your folded money, credit cards, secret notes, scrawled phone numbers, license or id here, but it was originally used for cigarettes.
There is no brand for this clutch.
Closed, this compact measures 4 inches by 3 inches by 1 inch. There is a loop wristlet on the side of the compact.
It is in excellent vintage condition. The interior is in fantastic shape, although there are some spots of enamel missing from both sides of the exterior. (The price reflects this.) This is nothing that detracts from the clutch. I feel like its part of the piece's charm. The discolorations you see in the exterior in the images are reflections from the light and not discolorations on the item itself.
This would be perfect for the retro, pin up girl in your life. This is a piece of fashion history that will be much loved and well used. It would be great for a more formal occasion, but it would also make jeans and a sweater pop!
It is sure to be an elegant conversation piece.

A bit about reserving Items. I am more than happy to reserve an item for you. However, recently, I have had buyers request to reserve items, only to back out at the last moment. (This has happened with at least the last 10 people who have requested to reserve an item.) While I understand that things do come up and do happen and that money is tight, this is not fair to other buyers or to me. To save time as well as hassle, I have some new policies regarding reserves.
1. You must pay (through PayPal) 20% of the item's price. This 20% will be put towards the purchase. However, this 20% is non refundable. If you have questions about this please ask. If you do not wish to put down 20%, then I cannot reserve an item for you. No exceptions.
2. You MUST tell me when you plan to purchase the item you have reserved.
3. If you cannot purchase the item by the date you have selected, please let me know. 4. If you do not purchase the item by the date you have given me, I will contact you. If I do not hear back from you, I will open the listing up to other buyers.
If you purchase an item that has been reserved for another buyer, I will unfortunately have to cancel the transaction and refund your payment.
Lastly, on the subject of reserved items, I must please ask, if you really do not intend to purchase the item, please do not ask me to reserve it for you. My time, as well as your time, is precious.
Thank you very much for your cooperation and your understanding.
Thanks for popping in. <3
