Quite unusual, this gate top purse is probably circa 1930's-40's. The silvertone mesh opens at its widest to 7". From the top of the clasp to the bottom of the mesh, the purse measures 6 1/2" tall. I rarely have seen a gate top in silver with a colorful deco design. All around the bottom, the diamond shaped design is in colors of green, pink, ruby red and carmel. The cap has a boat design on top; it opens up to a round mirror inside the cap and the gate expands when open to 5" wide. It is lined with the original off white satin lining. There is a small amount of tarnish on the cap and gate top but nothing that detracts...it is almost part of the patina. What makes this wonderful today, is that can expand to hold a phone, cosmetic items and a credit card. In excellent vintage condition....the mesh is in perfect condition.
