Antique Tortoise Shell Coin Purse For French Fashion Doll
It is most likely French in origin, and measures 2 5/8" by 2 2/8". The front is inlaid in gold metal, probably brass and there are tiny circles of abalone inlaid creating a circular design. There is brass inlay surrounding the central circle motif. The top closes with a tiny brass latch.
The piece opens to reveal a blue velvet lining and a compartment to hold coins, with a latch that is still working.
The purse is in fair antique condition. The tortoise shell is all intact with no cracks. The top latch and interior latch work. There is some missing inlay from the scroll work on the sides of the central brass circle. The interior velvet has not faded but could use some re-gluing.
All in all a wonderful antique for your doll or yourself. Enjoy!
