A fabulous Parklane LSM compact carryall from the late 1930's early 1940's. This carryall comprises, on one side, compartments for powder, rouge and lipstick (there is a card insert with says 'For Your Favourite Lipstick) and a full length mirror. and on the other side a space for cigarettes and matches and a small lidded compartment. This super carryall comes with the original 'fake' cigarettes and match book. The carryall is fully marked on the insides of both clasps. The length including the wrist strap is 20 cm. Dimensions are approximate. There is a central cartouche with the letter 'M' engraved on it.
This delightful Parklane carryall is in excellent condition inside and out. The compact has its original sifter and puff in unused condition. The rouge compartment has its original sifter but the rouge has spread and possibly been used. The mirror is in excellent condition. The second compartment with paper cigarettes appears to be untouched. The body of the carryall is in excellent condition with one spot of enamel missing (please see the photographs) and some minor enamel loss to each corner/edge.
