This is a wonderful antique silver purse frame with no bag as yet attached. The frame is simply beautiful with a wonderful pastoral and village scene with windmills, a dancing couple and flutist, farmhouse and trees.
It is silver, though it is not stamped that I can see. The frame measures 8" at the widest closed, 5 1/2" tall. The rather long chain extends another 13 from the frame. The opening is 5 3/4" at the widest but I think that a 6" wide purse would fit in it.
Condition: There is very little wear to this frame other than some patina. There are no dents that I can see and the clasp closes very securely. It is also quite solid at about 6 ounces.This piece came from the personal collection of my late, talented and lovely mother. She was well known in certain circles for her work helping to accurately costume period films in Hollywood. She was even better known for her expertise and discriminating taste in antique jewelry!
