The 15 inch silver-tone chain has twisted links. The purse's bottom has triangular shaped mesh fringe. These vintage mesh purses are like a piece of art and look beautiful hanging on a wall or in a frame. I've always thought of them as a piece of jewelry for your hand. The body of the purse measures approx.
6 7/8 x 4 3/4 inches. There are no holes in the bottom.
There is vintage patina and wear, such as fine scratches to the silver tone frame and chain. There is a hole in the body of the purse with one enamel dot missing. The enamel pieces around it are worn with missing enamel. (I took a photo of the hole from the outside and you can also see it in one of the photos of the inside of the purse).Six of the triangle fringe pieces have enamel worn off with wear to some of the other fringe. Some of the enamel is worn off in other places. There is some vintage patina to some of the links on the inside. One side has the usual wear of a few metal links being disconnected in the corners by the hinge (as photographed). Please check out all photos for condition.
