Adorable ART DECO Gilt Metal & Rhinestone Mesh Coin Purse with Butterfly Lid

Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….

AGE: C.1920 or so

ITEM: I'm guessing Art Deco but this adorable coin purse may be a little younger or maybe a little older. Made of mesh chain that has darkened through the years, the top lid of the piece is all filigree with an applied butterfly (or moth) to the top. The lid is bright gold and if the body wasn't as mellow as it is, I'd swear someone added a new lid just recently! There are applied rhinestones to the top in coloring of amethyst (on the outer edge) and garnet (on the butterfly). Simple twist button closure - easy open, easy close. There is no chain and the jump rings used to hold one are in "open" positions allowing this to be done easily.

CONDITION: Mesh has a nice vintage patina - lid is bright gold. No chain. No balls missing at the bottom - no holes in the mesh. Some very small areas on the underside of the lid show light wear to the gold overlay. ALL the jump rings holding the mesh are in place!

METAL CONTENT: Gilt Metal

HALLMARKS: None that I can spot.

SIZE: The lid has positioned itself in an upright angle. Height to top of clasp is 4" (to bottom of ball); width is 2-5/16".

FINAL COMMENTS: Perfectly adorable and the only one I have!

Anyone want?
