Spanish term or phrase: vánites
Hi! I'm translating a list of items that are not allowed to be carried in flights and I came across the word "vánites". Does any one know what this is?

"OBJETOS DE CRISTAL O VIDRIO: Envases o recipientes (botellas, pomos, vasos, copas,
platos), artesanías, instrumentos o similares, frascos de perfume, de medicamentos u otros que
excedan de diez (10) centímetros de alto por cinco (5) centímetros de ancho. Espejos y
vánites que excedan los diez (10) centímetros de diámetro."

Thanks in advance!

Explanation:
"Espejos" are "mirrors" and "vanity mirror" are smaller, pocket-sized versions of the same.
