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 it has a lot more decorative balls than are usually found on these purses.
A French fashion accessory from the period of Napoleon III.
It measures 2 1/4 inches by 2 3/4 Inches.
It has the French Sterling Silver Mark of a Sangier or Boar's Head as well as the maker's mark..
The mesh is flawless and the hinges and clasp are in excellent working order.
