The outside of the purse is a mesh metal that are cream colored - none are missingn. The frame, the large knobs that lock together on top of the frame and the chain handle are all from what I've been told is bakelite.
The purse with the chain handle in the up position measures 13 in length. The bag itself is 6" tall and 10.5" wide. It is a beauty from the past and would make a great addition to any collection.
