Gorgeous, Victorian celluloid coin purse that dates to the mid 1800s. Considering the fragility of the ivory colored celluloid, and the cardboard like sections inside, I would consider this piece to be in excellent condition. The only things making it less than mint is some roughness on the plain, back side of the purse, and some minor oxidation to the silver colored metal frame, which is not sterling, but the inlaid design on the front is sterling. Inside the purse is a 1 schilling coin that is dated 1851. I am leaving it with the purse. The hinges and snap closure work perfectly. When snapped closed, it measures 2&3/4 inches wide by 2 inches tall. A hard to find piece in any condition, but this one is exceptional.
