The minaudière is an accessory considered a jewelry piece, intended to substitute for an evening bag. This case with compartments, allows storage for several items such as a makeup compact, lipstick, watch, reading glasses, or keys.
The minaudière appeared during the 1930s. Its invention is attributed to Charles Arpels, of Van Cleef & Arpels, but many jewellers and Haute Couture designers have created their own models.
