This little purse is made of gold tone metal mesh and has a decorative top that does not open. It is about 2 1/2" long and has a ring on each side of top to put a handle. I have attached some burgundy silk string to one side and will include it in case you wish to use it. This could be put on a doll's arm or add a chain and wear it for a necklace if you collect purses. Fabulous either way!
