Vintage 1950s Evans Company Carryall

Highly collectible vintage gold tone metal carry all features two sides: one for a comb, powder, lipstick, and coins - the other for cigarettes and a lighter. Everything fits neatly in this double sided carry all - and the rope chain handle makes it easy to carry!

Carryall features original accessories: mirror, powder, powder puff (with Evans logo), lipstick holder, and lighter. The only accessory missing is the comb. Exterior and interior are gold tone metal. The Evans logo is impressed/stamped on the interior metal piece that holds cigarettes in place and on the powder container lid.

Additional Info and Condition Details:

Exterior is mirrored gold tone metal with etched linear design (think plaid!) - overall good/very good condition with some surface scratches but no major flaws. No dents of any kind, no gouges or scrapes. Rope chain handle is securely attached - gold tone finish has mellowed to a warm, brassy gold.

Interior side with smoking accessories: metal finish is in impeccable, perfect condition. Stamped/impressed linear design matches exterior. Evans logo is featured on movable piece that holds cigarettes in place. This space could easily be used to hold other things (credit cards, license, cash, etc.). Original gold tone lighter features matching linear design details (pat number and Evans mark on bottom). There is a small dark spot of wear in the compartment that holds the lighter (you have to remove the lighter to see it).

Vanity/accessories side: original mirror included - absolutely functional but with a few small spots of wear/age - no cracks or scrapes. Interior gold tone is in excellent condition without chips, fading, or wear. Evans powder puff included (obviously used but so quaint!). Powder still present in powder container. Powder lid features Evans coat of arms logo. Lipstick holder is gorgeous and features a translucent cobalt blue glass top with visible etched design underneath (think Guilloche enamel style!). Visible wear/gold tone loss around gold tone rim under the glass top. Still fabulous and interior tube is clean, empty, and most likely never used . Spring release coin holder works perfectly and is in excellent condition.

Overall I consider this vintage carry all to be in very good condition - both highly usable/wearable and highly collectible!
