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.
