Rare wood coin purse of a Pug Dog-Must See!!!

This is a must see piece. I personally find this to be one of the most unusual and coolest pieces I have ever had the opportunity to offer for sale. To me this piece is perfect for any collection, and certainly appropriate for a purse collector, a box collector, and of course for a dog collector.

Made of what appears to me to be Olive wood (although do not quote me as I am really not good about woods, so you be the judge)this little coin purse is a rare find. As seen in the pictures the exterior is carved to look like a pug dog or boxer. The eyes are glass and the sides are carved ears. The back is a smooth finish and one opens the purse by pushing a little brass button at the top. When opened one finds in this case a blue silk lined compartmentalized with 3 sections.

You don't want to pass this really unusual piece up, do you?

Condition: Excellent. Surface scratches to the wood, commensurate with age, no detraction's here. The silk lined interior is also in great condition with just a little fraying, very minor. The carving is in excellent condition and the glass eyes are origonal.

As in all my listings you will find the size of the item on one of the pictures. The measurements are approximate as rulers and tape measures etc can be slightly varied from one to another. The measurements are as close to size as we can get.
