Featured is a truly one of a kind evening bag. This is made of buffalo horn, water buffalo most likely as the American bison has smaller horns. The brass corners, rim, hinge and clasp also lead to India as they have been leaders in brass work for centuries. The chain is also heavy brass links. Inside is a purple crushed velvet covering. There is one tiny scratch on the front near the brass rim band. My guess is this happened when the brass was attached. No markings. India was popular around the 1910s. Measures 7 1/2 long by 5 1/4 tall by 2 1/2 wide. Now who else will you meet at a party with one on their shoulder!?
