This is an attractive hallmarked 800 silver purse/handbag dating to the late 19th or early 20th Century.
The purse is silver mesh and has a very pretty cut out floral top. It is not lined; very often pretty hankies were used to line the purses. There is a strong working clasp and a chain handle that was most likely added later. The chain is not silver and has a gold cast.
The purse has a weight of 5.580 troy ounces. It is in very good condition, with no significant breaks in the mess or separation from the frame.
It measures 6" in length and is 7" wide.
