For your consideration is a vintage small metal mesh purse with a 2 1/2"L half of length times half again chain link style handle. The frame has a lovely filigree style design on both sides, also. The purse has a dark patina overall. I have never seen a small vintage mesh purse such as this one. I am only guessing, but this mesh purse could have possibly been a part of a Chatelaine. A Victorian style woman would have carried a number of small items on the Chatelaine, such as: keys, small purse, compact, etc. It is approximately: (without chain handle): 3"L X 2 3/4"W. (frame). There is a very tiny mark on the inside of the frame that looks like the number 6, but I couldn't get a good picture of it for show.
CONDITION: There is a couple of loose or opened chains underneath the frame on both sides and as mentioned, a dark patina. The dark patina gives it vintage character and the other flaw is not that bad & only mentioned for accuracy! Otherwise! It is in very good, vintage & collectible condition.
