We are so pleased to introduce our newest collection – The Minaudière! This beauty features the most incredible, ornate hand embroidered robins egg blue silk from an antique Canton shawl in our collection. Our trademark hand tinted passementerie braid frames each side of the frame along with prong set vintage rhinestone ribbons. The perfectly functioning gold vermeil frame locks tight with a top button closure, and inside you will find the most amazing hand embroidered silk lining. We have added a removable gold vermeil chain so this can be carried in your hand like a jewel box, or over your arm. We don’t think you will find a more beautiful Minaudière purse anywhere.

As our signature design, this Minaudiere Purse is beautifully hand assembled using meticulous couture techniques. We use the finest antique and vintage textiles, trims and jewels throughout our couture collection of accessories, jewelry and clothing making every item exclusively one of a kind. Imperfections due to age are a natural characteristic we believe lends to the inherent beauty of our heirloom creations.
Historically women throughout the world have treasured exquisitely made small purses as an important fashion statement to carry their necessities. We love beautiful purses and because they add so much to our individual style we decided to marry two of our favorite collections - Wish Boxes and Elizabeth Heirloom Purses to give you our newest treasure. We are so pleased to introduce our Jeweled Minaudière Purse Collection. We sourced the very best maker of box purse frames in Italy and have spared no expense creating these opulent little luxuries. Each is different in size, shape and detail.
