A Beautiful Silver French Porte Monai Debutant's Purse 1860. It has a pendant loop so it could be worn on a ribbon either around the neck or on the dress lapel.

The French debutant called it Port Monai or literally to Carry Money.

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.

The mesh is flawless and the hinges and clasp are in excellent working order.
