Charming little French powder puff purse/compact dance purse dating to the early 1900's. It is made from a lovely shade of pink silk and trimmed in gold metallic lame' lace and lettuce edge ombre' ribbon. In addition, there are four little composition pastel colored baubles. Drawstring handle is functional. This style of bag was intended to be worn on the wrist for dances. Interior holds a powder puff and there is a mirror on the bottom for checking your makeup! Sorry, no puff in this one! Bag measures 3" high when sides are fully extended and the mirrored bottom measures 3" by 2". Although this is a lovely piece for display, unfortunately the silk has splits within it as pictured. They are not really noticeable while the bag is sitting as for display as the silk is quite full and gathered. Piece is clean, mirror is clear and metallic lace is in good condition. A lovely piece to display with your same era French textile boxes. Price reflects condition...
