A Victorian doll change purse made of leather and covered with silk. The top shows a silver metal clasp. The silk is a neutral off white that has little hand painted flowers on front and back. The interior is a brown buckskin color.
We did not find any manufacturing mark on this to assist us in who made it. We would place this in the late 1890s for a time period.
Measuring a 1 2/3 inches wide at the bottom and 1 1/2 inches tall. As you can see from our one photo this is barely bigger than a quarter. A sweet little purse that your favorite doll can tuck in her pocket.
