An unused satinized copper 1940s carryall / vanity case / minaudiere. The lid is composed of strips of satinized copper woven together to form a basket weave albeit in metal. The brushing technique which gives this vanity case a satinized finish renders the metal to look smooth and shiny like satin. The copper hue making this vanity even more enchanting.
