The minaudière appeared during the 1930s. Its invention is attributed to Charles Arpels, of Van Cleef and Arpels, but many jewellers and haute couture designers have created their own versions. This minaudière is our 2017 version. It is sized to fit contemporary cell phones. We believe that it is today’s elegant alternative to conventional evening bags.
Please note that each minaudière is individually hand-crafted and signed by Alan Anderson. No two pieces are identical.
Each piece is lined in softest emerald calf leather and includes a crystal strap for carrying.
