Isn’t this the cutest evening bag for a horsewoman? You? Or someone you love?
It’s up for auction at John Moran’s “HQ Jewelry & Luxury Item Auction” December 6th at 6pm PST. Lot #140. If you can’t make it to Pasadena that evening, you can put in an absentee bid, bid by phone or bid in online.
The minaudiere measures 4″H x 6″W x 2.5″D. It comes with a coinpurse, mirror and comb, miniature notebook with goldtone pen, two signed pouches, one dustbag and a Certificate of Authenticity.
It’s not in perfect shape (just like a real horse, or you and I). It’s missing a few crystals in scattered areas (“on both items” says the listing) and there’s a small dent on the pen. The estimate is $1000 to $1500.
It reminds me of this Japanese brush painting that I featured in an earlier blog post:
Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays someone!
