Antique Coin Purse - Silver Coin Purse- Mini Coin Purse
O my my my... can you believe the cuteness in one piece? This is a miniature coin purse and I would maybe assume it was for a child, but these were also used to attach to Victorian Dresses or a chatelain, but there is not the typical clip that would attach it to a belt. Regardless it is amazing. It is so small and studded around the silver frame of the bag. The outside on either side is a metal very thin mesh. There is a small chain at the top of the bag. The purse is about 3.5" wide by about 2.5" tall or almost 4" with the chain. The inside does have a stamp in the metal inside frame, but I can not make it out. The purse still clasps open and close well. It has a blue interior and has a small slot that would have at one time clasped again within the purse, but the clasp is not working internally. When I got this gem there was a piece of paper in it that was folded and when I opened it it said "Mildred F. Allen Henry, IL" and I chose to believe Mildred was the owner and wanted to make sure if ever found it could get back to her.
