This one is unusual because the purse has two sections with a bow top divider. One was for silver coins and the other for gold coins.
A French fashion accessory from the period of Napoleon III.
It measures 2 1/4 inches by 2 1/4 Inches.
It has the French Sterling Silver Mark of a Sangier or Boar's Head.
