800 or Silver Plate Mesh Drawstring Purse.
This sweet purse has an interesting decorative element around the top, resembling a jester's collar. Each V-shape segment has a tiny bead ball hanging from it. The bottom edge has decorative, connected fringe. It has large rings around the top with a braided silver cord that allows closing and expanding the opening and provides a carry handle.
It is unmarked and it is jeweler tested as either 800 silver or silver plate. The mesh body measures about 6 ½" tall and 6 ¼" wide. It weighs about 254g.
Condition: 2 of the bead/ball decorations are missing from the decorative `collar' and it is missing two of the solid links in the mesh, both are on one side, about 2 ½" apart and not readily noticeable.
This is a beautiful purse with a graceful appearance. A refined lady of the past would have carried this purse. We are always offering a nice selection of jewelry and other vintage goodies, so please take a look through our shop. We would be pleased to combine shipping on multiple purchases.
