About the Item

Black Suede and Bakelite Minaudiere from the 1930's. Completely outfitted as a vanity case with compartments for every need (from that period). The borders of the metal frame and clasp are decorated with hand decorated bakelite clad metal floral designs. Hot metal is cased around a bakelite base and then is further decorated with incised or raised decorations. This technique is used mainly on jewelry but is used here to great effect. Black suede front and back. 1930's USA. Excellent condition. 9.5" x 5" x 1".
