What a cute little purse, guaranteed to Victorian, probably mid to late 1800's. It measures 3 & 1/2" by 2 & 3/8" and about 1/2" thick. The hand engraving is fantastic. The original owners initials "E. M. R." are engraved on the back in a lozenge. The interior is some sort of treated paper so is fragile as the dickens and ha few small tears. Other than that it is in beautiful condition and candy for the eyes .
