This 1920 Cathedral style handbag is made of gold mesh maille, with 1920 engraved on the clasp on the wrist strap. I tried to show the date but it is a small engraving. Most of these unlined maille handbags were of German design. The method of maille or chainmail is rows of small metal rings linked together. The gold band around the tassel has tiny engraved flowers.
Width at top of engraved frame is 1". Width at end of frame is 4". Width at bottom is 4 3/4".
Length is 6 3/4". Tassel is 1 1/2". Adjustable strap is 7 1/2" in length.
In excellent condition, no holes.
As always, my items are clean and smoke free.
