Enameled Chain Mesh Doll or Childs Purse Vintage 1900s
Fine chain mesh bag with metal frame decorated with scallops and swirls, painted with (worn) white enamel. The body of the bag is also enameled on front and back in soft shades of blue and green. The bottom edge is trimmed with a delicate metal fringe. The original chain strap is firmly attached. Interior is unlined.
Bag measures 3-7/8" from top of clasp to bottom of fringe, 2-5/8" across at the widest part of frame, with a 2-1/2" drop. Perfectly sized for your vintage Boudoir or Fashion Dolls. Unmarked, in good vintage condition. The frame is true, opens easily and closes tightly. There are no holes or tears in the metal mesh. The chain is strong with no bends or repairs.
There are a few small areas around the edges where the mesh has pulled away from the frame (see photos), easy to fix if you are so inclined. There is wear and fading of the enameling (shown), and the silvery metal frame shows some surface wear (see photos). I have not cleaned this piece because I prefer this timeworn patina.
From a non-smoking home. Insurance for this item is optional. I offer combined shipping on most orders and ship worldwide.
