Victorian Sterling Silver Gatetop Purse Frame Signed Gorham

For sale is this extraordinary signed Gorham sterling silver gatetop purse frame. The lid is finely decorated with roses, daisies, swirls and the letter "E". It measures 1 1/2" diameter and is signed with the Gorham mark dating it to the last quarter of the 19th century. The purse opens with an expandable gatetop that opens to almost 4" diameter and the edges of this portion of the purse are finely decorated with tiny flowers. The purse hangs from a chain that measures approximately 5 1/2" long from the "O" ring attached to the scissor top to the tip of the large sterling finger ring. The purse is rather heavy weighing in at over 75 grams and it is in perfect condition waiting for that special cloth or beaded finish. Price is firm on this beauty!
