This is a very nice Silver evening purse, in excellent condition. There is a place in the middle of the repousse, which could be engraved. This has never been done. The purse has a good clasp, and inside is the original silk lining. The piece measures 3 and 3/4 inches East to West, and 2 inches North to South. There are no dents or dings, and the hallmarks declare that the piece is British Sterling Silver, minted in Birmingham, in the year 1899.
