I feel this may be French. I purchase a lot in Britain bought so it's possible. The frame is wonderful, a yellow gold color with such detail in excellent condition. Opens by pushing down on the little button. The rich dark blue velvet is in nice with only minimum wear marks near the frame where it's ruched. No marks that I can see and the interior is perfect; similar to moire silk. From the frame to the bottom it's 9 inches and 7 1/2 at the widest. The chain matches well but I can't say if it is original but it is vintage and measures about 14 inches. Lovely.
