I am so pleased to offer this amazing vintage shell minaudiere or shoulder bag from France, circa the early 1920's. This precious bag measures 6 1/2" in length, and 4 1/2" in height, and 2 1/2" in depth.
It features a honey comb pattern where the box tortoiseshell plaques meet. It is framed with brass and lined with black silk. The brass shoulder strap has a 17" drop. It closes with a cross over "snap" that has a perfect sound that is strong and secure. In amazing vintage condition with no repairs, missing parts or damage to the exterior. This little treasure is ready for a night out or anywhere you want to go. From the days that all you needed was a few dollar bills and lipstick.

International buyers please contact me for shipping rates, thank you.
