This purse is ready for parties. A golden nest egg packed with your essentials- comb, eyeliner, lipstick, hand mirror and even a pencil for adding to your dance card. Glamour is only a powder room away for a quick sleek, shine and smack. The little purse features glittery gold and cream jacquard with cream lining and a plated snap closure and chain. An attached insert safely holds all your treasures. The eyeliner pencil is Khasana brand in black, while the lipstick cannister is empty so can be filled with your favourite shade. You even get a hand held mirror instead of a compact, which features the same purse fabric on the reverse. The comb is faux-tortoiseshell.

Condition: Excellent- Overall showing a little wear due to its vintage nature. The comb has all its tines, the pencil is a bit worse for wear and appears to be a later addition to the bag so is detached. The mirror has peeled edges but is useable. Purse fabric is lightly frayed, see photos. Some of the plating throughout is a little worn.
