This is a lovely old mesh evening bag which could be Victorian but looks more Edwardian "Flappers" style doesn't it? Note the little metal balls dangling at the bottom...very 'Flapperesque"! Anyway it is 5 x 4 inches and in pretty good condition. Some of the links need re-attaching and it's missing one of the little balls from the bottom. Someone has added the lining and this just needs taking out as I doubt whether there was one at all originally. A great old reticule at a very, very, good price.
