Greatest WIDTH: 6 inches - HEIGHT: 4 inches - OPEN: 6.5 inches - CHAIN: 24 inches - WEIGHT: 6.2 oz.
Highly decorative FRENCH silver purse frame. There is no silver mark except for what appears to be a somewhat illegible hallmark at the hinge in Photo #8, however, I have tested the frame and guarantee it to be as described.
The frame is covered with very detailed, three dimensional figurals. The top of the frame shows two identical female figures with snake bodies, floral coronets, a pair of wings (?), and pearl (?) necklaces.
The other dominate figures appear to be a pair of unicorn headed sea monsters along the sides of the frame.
Floral garlands and lattice work complete the designs on the frame.
No damages or repairs. The chain appears to be original.
The closure is a smoothly working push button with a floral pull tab.
And finally, engraved on the inner edge of the purse. in flowing cursive: "E Gauthier 97 Rue des Petit Champs Paris"
