A beautiful and rare gunmetal chatelaine purse with the original gunmetal* chain with crystals.
Gunmetal is extremely strong, hard and resistant to corrosion.
The small purse is chain link mesh, it is wired to the metal frame, it closes with secure 'kiss' clasp.
The purse hangs from chains that attach to a ring which in turn hangs from the long chain.
The gunmetal chain has short lengths of chain alternating with long links, twelve bezel set crystals are interspersed throughout the chain.
Both the purse and chain are in mint condition, no damage or visible wear.
The purse measures 2.5" across the frame and 3" across the bottom by 3" long. The purse chains are 2.5", the ring is 7/8" in diameter. The chain is 57" so it can be worn doubled or tripled, it attaches to the purse ring with a large spring ring clasp so the chain be worn separately.
A fabulous all original Victorian chatelaine purse and chain in the very hard to find gunmetal.
