This vintage makeup / jewelry storage case has retained an okay condition for it's age avoiding major aesthetic imperfections but retaining many minor scuffs scratches and some significant fading of gold studs on the bottom. Other gold hardware has scratches but otherwise retains a good shine.
The biggest issues on the piece are the fact the lock does not work anymore (in fact the inner hardware for it is missing it seems). The left latch is defective and does not clip naturally anymore (see description for more) so the right latch is what keeps the box closed.Mirror is overall okay with few marks and peeling on the edges. Please see all images for full quality representation. C ranking - An okay condition vintage case with some noticeable rub marks and scratches on parts of the external and internal leather and gold. The top and bottom inner covers seem to be loosening but still holds. The piece comes with removable mirror and the closure overall retains functionality despite only having one truly functional latch. See all images for clarity. Authentic'Must de Cartier' Vintage Leather Burgundy Bordeaux Clip Closure Makeup Jewelry Case Box. Maroon / Burgundy / Bordeaux. This is an authentic vintage Must de Cartier signature logo case that was produced in the late 20th century. This model sports the iconic Cartier logo on gold plated clip closure slide buttons along with in burgundy leather on the sides of the case. This line of bags have become increasingly difficult to track down with this size and model type rarely surfacing online.
The leather has some scuffs and white marks from storage and the gold hardware shows scratching and some discoloration. Stitching on the leather is in wonderful condition for it's age. The combination lock on the piece no longer works due to the inner hardware latch missing. The right latch holds strong and closes correctly, but the left latch does not close unless specifically holding the push lock open while shutting the top (and when this is achieved it becomes shut very tight making the button hard to press and reopen). Overall the case is in functioning condition but suffers from functional imperfections.
The inside of the case is in pretty good condition though, with fewer marks than the outside. The case was either designed for jewelry or makeup storage as it has a caboodle style opening with a mirror on the inner lid that can be removed and stood up separately. This case is equally practical as it is collectible so make sure to get one while it's still available! S : New or new without a tag.
