Vintage Evening Bag

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog.*


Here is another vintage item that I bought long ago at Covent Garden's Antique Market.  After my initial purchases of the vintage compacts, I went scouring for some other vintage stuff which included a gorgeous crotchet evening dress which I will probably show in a future post.  During the search I found this gorgeous evening bag.  I am not sure what year, maybe 1940's or 1950's but it is a steel-caged bag housed some extras inside.

Cage-like interior with some extra baubles-a mirror and a lipstick case(?).


At first I thought the little container may have carried cigarettes but it is too short for that.  I am thinking it was the "cosmetic bag" of that era.  If anyone knows what it is actually used for, please let me know.


Because it is a vintage, I found it only fitting to house some of my Besame Cosmetics in it.  Looks chic doesn't it?

Again like the compacts I can only wonder about the woman who carried these.  I hope that she lived a fulfilling life and had memories to last her into her twilight years because I have good memories of London when I look at these!
