Purse Compact, Damascene Style Black Formal Necessaire Handbag with Compact, French Minaudiere, Vintage Compact Purse

This is a beautiful Compact Purse that is round, but with a flat bottom so that is able to be stood up on a table or counter. This purse has some very nice features. On the outside of the purse is a design that is reminiscent of the Damascene style jewelry. The outer exterior has a black matte finish for the material with gold and silver butterfly and flower applicate. The edging has a gold trim where the purse opens and nice gold clasps that hold the handle that is also the same black material. On the back of the purse, it is plain black. A very rich looking purse.

On the inside of this purse is a powder well that has a gold cover. It also has the cutest little peachy colored puff that is boa style and fluffy! There is also a smaller well that holds a replica bullet style lipstick holder, except lipstick is not what is in it. It has a wonderful sable makeup brush that can be extended and looks to have never been used. On the top section of the purse is a ¾ round mirror. Sadly, there are some age marks to the silvering of the mirror. It is mostly on the edges and it is still useable. However, what is really very nice with this purse is in back of the mirror is a wonderful, fairly wide pocket where you can put a small purse, keys or other essentials… very nice.

This purse clasps shut nicely and is in very good condition, however please note the mirror does have some aging to it, all else is very, very good. This is a pre-owned item.

• The size of the purse is 5.5 inches in diameter
• The width of the purse is 1 ½ inches
• The purse strap is approximately 14 inches in total and 7 inches when on the wrist, this will give you approximately a 4 inch drop from the wrist

    Frequently Asked Questions

    International Customers: Custom Fee Information

    ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that many countries have Custom Fees associated with any purchase. These Custom Fees range in percentage for what the purchased item is and what the value of the item is.

    • The Custom Fees are the responsibility of the Buyer. The Seller has no way of paying for them, nor is it the responsibility of the Seller. The value of the item is the cost of your order minus any shipping / insurance charges. This is a value that cannot be changed. The values are defaulted from the Shipping Label Processing, so please bear that in mind. It is illegal to reduce the value of a purchased item.

    How are RETURNS Handled?

    If you chose to return an item, please reach out to me so that I know that the item is being returned and I can be sure to look for it in my future mail. Most items will be refunded fully. The EXCEPTION is if you have a ring resized. Unfortunately, I am forced to minus the cost of the ring sizing from the total amount that it was purchased for. Sizing costs can range from $25 to $50 dollars dependent on the ring size difference and whether the base metal of the ring is silver or gold. The most common cost to me is $35.00 for most rings. The remainder of the amount of the item will be refunded to you just as soon as I receive the item back.
