This small pocket book or purse is black lacquer papier mache with Mother-of-Pearl inlay. The frame is brass. It measures 2 1/4" x 3 1/2". The clasp slides out and works perfectly. The inside has worn and faded red silk. The highlight is the hand-written not inside. It is dated 1862. It reads "Given by Andrew Gale to Helen Brown, Killed in the War." Very good condition considering the age. Just some crazing.

The heat is on here in Texas. Today was "stifling". A good day to stay indoors and shop.
