Antique Victorian Era French Coin Purse in Faux Tortoise Shell with Sterling Inlay, Tortoiseshell
Napoleon III era coin case in deep dark chocolate shell with the occasional touch of cognac appearing, steam-formed into the outer halves of a lovely coin purse, and inlaid with fine French sterling silver 'L' monogram as cartouche. Retains the original blue moire silk lined interior still intact, as well as the pleated sections as you see them in our photos. Measurements appear on the photos.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type, this one is very well preserved. It has the external appearance of one that was cherished but not used much, if at all. The lining is in excellent condition for its age, and no rips or tears at the pleats. Lockable compartment (into which one's tithe would have been put, of course) is fully intact and operational. No cracks, no chips but 2 small bug bites, noted in our photos, and a faint faint line between the two.
