This mesh chatelaine purse has a beautiful filigree metal top set with faux gems. I believe these purple stones are paste. The purse has a short rolo link chain. The metal is silver colored. I think there is a little base metal showing through on the clasp but it is hard to tell. There is one spot on the left side of the front where there is a small gap in the mesh. I attempted to show this in the last picture but the spot is kind of hard to see and didn't picture well. There is a little darkening of the metal including on the filigree but it is minor and not noticeable. I believe this little purse dates to the 1890’s. Overall it is in good used/aged condition. This is a lovely piece and would be a wonderful addition to a collection. It would also look great with a larger antique or vintage doll.
