A stunning Art Nouveau mesh evening bag or purse.

It has a lovely ornate G or German silver pierced frame with scrolling foliate decoration and an acorn style kiss lock clasp.

The bag has a chain mail body with a pretty pixie fringed hem, the handle is also chain and the bag is lined with cream kid leather.

The lining is coming away from the chain mail but it is unusual to find a bag of this age with the lining at all.

It is in very good antique condition aside from the lining, there are a few spots of verdigris (see photos) very pretty piece ideal for the collector.

G. Silver or German silver is not sterling silver it is a mixed alloy that closely resembles silver much like pinchbeck with gold.

Approx measurements:
6.5" total height
5.3" width of frame
8" total width
7.5" handle height
