LaVedette de Paris black suede cylindrical vanity bag illustrated on page 198 of "Vanity Bags" by Gerson. This unusual design features a bottom swivel that can raise the vanity to eye level. The 1/2 inch wide suede handle has a slide and swivels at the attachments to permit the lid to open unimpeded. The double click metal latch serves both to fasten the bag|s lid and the loose powder compact contained within the lid. The compact includes the sifter but no puff and appears unused. Ingenious interior design features a slit for storing the Art Deco style fold up tortoise comb, which has unfortunately broken loose from its frame and too fragile to use. Its case however is exquisite. The bag was purchased on a honeymoon trip in the spring of 1948 and visited the Moulin Rouge and the Eiffel Tower with its owner! Includes the original boxes. It|s a rare collector|s bag. Measures 2 1/4 inches in diameter and 6 1/4 inches high and rises to 7 1/2 inch.

This item was part of the archives of the Bag Lady Emporium, originally in operation from 1996 through 2022 (Inventory ID B00071). It sold for $175.00.
