Unusual silver mesh purse with lovely jewels encrusted on the top. This belonged to my grandmother who would be over 115 years old. It is in excellent condition. The silver is gray, as I have not attempted to clean it. All the mesh is intact and t are no missing parts. The top of the purse is square and has an interesting design in silver set with 5 blue stones. This upper square part expands to allow access in to the purse. The lid then fits over the expanded portion to keep purse together.

The evening bag measures 7 inches long and has a handle of silver links that is 12 inches in total length and extends the purse by 6 inches.

The opening bid is low and the bag is offered with no reserve with all sales final. It would make a unique addition to your collection. I would be happy to answer any questions by e-mail. Thanks so much for looking.

I checked on price of mailing item to Canada. Looks like it would be about $23.00.
