Beautiful metal mesh purse in a petite size, suitable for a doll or child, vintage 1920s. This vintage bag is the perfect size to display with your Boudoir Dolls or French Fashion Dolls. Made of metal mesh links with Art Deco chevron pattern applied in glowing colors of mint green, pale yellow and bright pink trimmed with shimmering metal fringe, with a stamped metal frame and delicate chain handle. The frame has a raised floral and chevron design with a pale green applied finish. Unmarked. Circa 1920s.
In very good condition, frame is squared, opens easily and closes tightly, original chain handle is strong and undamaged. The metal fringe is complete and full, with no missing or short strands. The color is vivid and undamaged. There are two rings that are loose and need to be reattached at one hinge, and an old repair that has come undone at the top of one side where bag attaches to frame. Neither of these minor flaws detract. The bag is completely use-able and displays well.
Measures 3-1/2" from the top of the clasp to the tips of the bottom fringe and 2-1/2" across from hinge to hinge. Chain has a 3" drop
