The silver frame is beautiful with finely detailed birds flanking the flower at the closing button, dimensional flower and leaf border around all the edges, openwork across the middle and a raised enameled flower center. The raised enamel center is teal with black. It is stamped on the inside of the frame, "Mandalian Mfg. Co., U.S.A."

The pearly white enameled mesh has a pretty, well balanced design in teal & black with touches of tangerine. The decorative bottom edge is 2 layers (front & back) finished in a 7 point Van Dyke zigzag. The chain is original and in good condition

The inside retains its original pretty light teal silk lining, but the fabric is ripped at the bottom. It would not be that difficult to replace the silk with new using the old as a pattern. Mandalian made its purses with and without the fabric lining.

Measurements: Purse is about 8” (20.2cm) long from top of clasp to bottom of fringe; mesh is 4 3/4” (12cm) across at the bottom; Frame is 4 1/4” (10.8cm) at the widest x about 3” (7.8cm) long (hard to measure)

Condition: There is some slight wear to the enamel on the mesh under the hinges at the sides and one tiny little mesh link might be missing on the back side. The original silk fabric lining is ripped at the bottom.
