The marks declare it to be English sterling silver, minted in Birmingham, in the year 1917, It has a lovely, pristine, brown leather lining. It measures, without counting the chain, 4 and 1/2 inches North to South, and 4 inches East to West at the widest point. It has a secure clasp, and is in very good condition for its age. There is one, small, corner dent, shown in a photo, which does not detract from a fine piece which is over 100 years old. The purse weighs 5.1 ounces. There is a place right in front for a monogram, but the piece has never been personalized.
