This shape was so popular in its time - a flattened circle - and the bags were frequently, like this one, made from tough card. It is thoroughly delightful: a brown marl pattern on the body, trimmed with dark red plastic and with metal fittings.
It isn't quite perfect: this picture shows a tiny mark on the top, and the pattern has worn around the edge of the top by the clasp.
Inside it is lined with a pale, patterned paper, with a small mirror set into the inner lid. It measures approximately 9 inches (23 cms) in height by 10 ½ inches (26.5 cms)across and 4 ¼ inches (11 cms) deep, and it is absolutely charming!
