This is a most attractive purse chatelaine with the purse being quite tiny so would have been only for coins. Although the purse and waist plaque have different designs, the marks on both the pieces imply that this complete item was assayed in London as an import in 1904, (the smiling sun dates it to 1904-1906 and the purse has a London date mark for 1904) so they have been together since that time. The purse has a maker’s mark of ‘JGP’ and the plaque has two additional, probably Continental marks and both are marked 925 for sterling. The purse is decorated with repoussé work showing figures in medieval dress and the waist plaque has an image of two winged putti reaching out to each other. When opened the purse is lined with a rich burgundy red satin and has two compartments. The piece is in excellent condition with no obvious flaws. This chatelaine would enhance any collection of miniature purses. Maximum length (including chain) 6.5 ins (16.5cm), width 2.75 ins (7cm). Weight 80 grams. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $42.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
