    Ava Gardner Owned Evans Vanity Box Evening Purse. This beautifully constructed, vintage Evans evening purse and vanity box is truly a gem - with a blue and green bejeweled front, a textured back, and a heavy brass chain, the rectangular purse is utilitarian functionality mixed with classic elegance. The front area holds a brass-lined comb, coin holder, lipstick and powder case area, and a mirror (unattached). The opposite side was designed for holding cigarettes, and has the Evans stamp along the hinge. The gold chain's drop measures 4.5", and the purse itself measures 5.5" wide and 3.5" high. The interior is in Good condition with missing powder puff and lipstick case, and the exterior is in Very Good condition with no dents or scratches, with working clasps. From the Ava Gardner Estate.
