A small make-up bag in green Bakelite plastic, with a silk hand strap with silk tassel. Spring opening with a button in the same material; a small mirror and vanity case are found inside. This type of bag, both for its elegance and its purpose as a make-up bag, is typical of the 1920s and became a symbol of the new feminine image of the emancipated, refined and elegant woman.
