Gallery label
PORTABLE LUXURY Small vanity cases are often a miracle of miniaturisation. They are considered jewels to grace the hands of elegant women during a soirée, yet are cleverly equipped with tiny compartments devised to carry make-up or even cigarettes. The Mappin & Webb example [M.140 to C-1984], although only 6 cm wide when closed, contains a mirror, an eyebrow pencil and holder, a lipstick and a power puff. V&A, Room 40, Bags: Inside Out.
