This is a beautiful ART DECO period purse clasp that was part of the contents of a Santa Rosa estate that I am working on. The purse clasp is made of silver tone metal rhodium plated with applied enamel in several shades of blue trimmed in silver. The center is set with many marcasite in geometric patterns.The piece measures 4 3/4" long 1 1/2" wide from top to bottom. The clasp is signed as shown Made in France. The condition is excellent with only one chip that I just noticed after handling it for a week. It took just the right light for me to even see it. This is a beautiful piece. It made me gasp when she opened the box. All of the contents of this house are fabulous and more comes out of the attic every day. This piece belonged to the owners Aunty Mame.
