Victorian Sterling Silver Mesh Chatelaine Bag w/ Coin Purse
This delightful Victorian sterling silver mesh bag features a built-in coin purse, a feature which is not often seen with other mesh style bags of this era. This was acquired from an avid collector's estate in San Francisco.
The frame has lovely engraving. The purse opens up to a small coin purse. The purse itself measures 5" tall by 4-3/4" wide, not including the chain.
The inside of the frame is marked "sterling" and reads, "I.B.W. Norfolk, VA. AUG. 26, 1912"
Superb condition. Total weight is 183 grams.
An extraordinary piece of Victoriana!
