Antique silver chain mail mesh gate top coin chatelaine purse. The lid is bezel set with a glowing yellow cabochon. The purse measures 5" long including the drop metal bead but not including the 9" long chain handle. The 3/4" diameter lid has a hallmark or touch mark that I do not recognize. The lid is bezel set with a glowing yellow cabochon. The cabochon is warm, not cold so it is not stone or glass. It has a brown spot in the center as shown. It may be amber but the surface does not have the fine crazing seen on antique amber. The gate top opens on a hinge and the sides of the purse open accordion like to a 1 3/4" diameter circular shape. There is discoloration to the finish on the inner lid as shown. I have not cleaned or polished this piece. I do not know the silver content of the metal. The chain mail mesh is in excellent condition. This piece is a mystery to me, I do not know the touch mark and do not know what the piece is set with.
