This beautiful designer Van Cleef and Arpels compact mirror box is crafted in 18 karat gold with a black lacquer finish. This fantastic box needs to be seen to appreciate the skill that went into it's making. We are happy to send it with pre-paid return packaging, so in the unlikely event you are not completely happy with it, it will be painless to return for a full refund. The box would have originally come in a Minaudiere set dating from the 1930's. The box is in overall very good condition. There is a spot on the inside of the bottom of the box where the lacquer is split as well as a small dent on the outside bottom of the box where it was placed on a hard object. "In the Roaring Twenties...While visiting his socialite friend Florence Jay Gould, Charles Arpels was surprised to see her tossing her lipstick, powder case, cigarettes, and lighter into a Lucky Strike cigarette tin. From this encounter, the idea for the Minaudière® precious case was born." -VCA
