60s Wadsworth Minaudière Gold Metal Make Up Clutch + Comb & Black Evening Pouch


This vintage minaudière or small make up clutch was made by Wadsworth, most likely in the early 1960s. Made from gold metal, it features a black beaded design on the top lid and two compartments: one with a lipstick holder and plastic comb and the other with a mirror and powder pad. It also comes with its original black velvet sling holder with tassel and cinch ring, which includes a small pocket for stowing the bag. The metal clutch measures appx 3.5in L x 2.2in D and the pouch measures 15in L (including tassel). Stamped WADSWORTH on the metal clutch and powder pad. In very good condition given its age, we note some scratching here and there, most notable to the interior.
