Today we are pleaed to offer for sale a fabulous all in one compact purse from the mid 1960s. This goldtone purse is “over the top” with a ring pattern decoration with pink rhinestones on the lid, surrounded by bevel cut trim. The purse has a goldtone mesh strap. The interior features a place for everything the lady could possibly need for a night on the town: a large mirror which lifts to expose a cigarette case with flip up bar to hold cigarettes in place; a clear lucite comb in a holder; a lipstick case; a small compact area for powder; a green fabric pouch for change; and a small square compartment for pills. It doesn’t get much better than this. Unsigned but probably made by Evans and sold under a retailer’s label. Fabulous Hollywood Regency glamour to add to your vintage purse or compact collection! Fabulous near mint condition. Unused. Only indications of age are a discoloration to the green fabric change pouch, slight scratches on the back side from being moved around on a shelf or table top, and the perfume vial seems to be stuck in place. We think it might have had a scent which spilled, causing the pouch discoloration and sticking it in place. Fresh to the market from a Rhode Island estate!
