I have the minaudiere pictured on the magazine cover. It is exactly the same pattern but made by D. Evans Case Company. On the top of the box is says Evans Elegance. Do you have any more info?

Dear Lucy,
The one on the cover of Elle is by Judith Leiber, perhaps she was inspired by your vintage Evans case? Here are two links I used to research my minaudiere:

Hope that helps!

I have a cigarette lighter and two ashtrays that were given to me as a wedding present in 1953. The cigarette holder on the ashtrays is a gold grid. Both ashtrays and the lighter have gold leaf fish around them. Do you have any idea how much they might be worth today.

Carma,
I have replied via email.

I just bought an Evans art deco clutch or reticule. It came with a lipstick case and small pouch, but the leather is not in great shape. What might this bag be worth? And can I fix the leather with polish?

I JUST PURCHASED AN EVANS MIRROR. ( LARGE ONE ) WITH LIKE IVORY OR SOMETHING ON THE BACK WITH A FLOWER ON IT. ANY IDEA HOW TO PRICE THIS.
