The striking case is fashioned from styptor and boasts a stylish Art Deco design featuring an elegant row of square-cut rubies at its clasp. The case opens to reveal a fitted mirror, one covered compartment with a transparent lid, and two additional open spaces for carrying all manner of essentials in style. The minaudière comes nestled inside a luxurious black Hermes case, marked "Hermes, Paris." Founded in 1896, the Place Vendôme High Jewelry Maison Van Cleef & Arpels is renowned for the elegance and artistry of its designs and innovative creations. The minaudière line of vanity cases such as this one epitomizes that tradition of stylish originality. These gorgeous cases were inspired by socialite Florence Gould, a close friend of Charles Arpels who witnessed her using a Lucky Strike tin as a cosmetics case. Thus, the idea for the minaudière was born. Gorgeously accented with platinum, gold and lavish jewels, these cases compartments were crafted to hold all of the essentials of the stylish 1940s woman: cosmetic mirror, lipstick, cigarettes and dance cards. This striking minaudière is a wonderful example of the elegance and artistry of these classic cases. Signed "La Minaudière de Van Cleef & Arpels" and stamped "STYPTOR".
