Antique Chinese foo dog gilt metal purse frame. The frame is ornate with applied foliate decoration, scroll bales for the handle and a pair of Asian guardian lion foo dogs that make up the clasp. The frame measures 5 1/2" long. The foo dogs measure 2 3/4" long and 1/2" tall. The clasp is in excellent working condition. I am selling this with the original embroidered fabric purse and fabric handle still attached but they are in very poor condition. The silk has dry rot and is mostly peeled off. The purse is reversible. It looks exactly the same on each side. I did not have the heart to remove this beautiful embroidery from the frame so I am selling the frame with the original fabric attached.
