Beautiful victorian black velvet bag with loops of dangling crystals or glass beads hanging from it. The beads are dark aurora bourealis with a repoussed silver top with an engraved floral frame in an sextagon(?)6 sided shaped top. There is a push button lock and hinged closure that work perfectly. The bag is fully attached to the frame securely. There is a round bezel set mirror on the lid when you open it. The mirror is thick. I am not sure what alloy percentage the silver is on this bag. Someone had been using silver polish on it,so it could be sterling or nickel silver. I am not sure. The decoration on the frame and lid is fabulous. There is a ring in the center of the lid that has a chain to hold the bag with. The chain has a wonderful pattinae(as well as the other silver) and measures approximately 12 inches long all stretched out. Looks to be handmade and is substantial. This bag is in very good condition. Nice and roomy. Has pucci or paisley lining inside. So maybe it was relined in the '60s? The lining could probably use a little cleaning. The black velvet is in great condition. Some of the bead loop danglings might be missing. You could either take away more to balance,leave it the way it is(looks fine to me),or whatever. This baby is a beauty! The bag measures about 4 1/4 x 4 inches around the frame, 8 1/2 inches long including the bottom dangling beads. It puffs out so there is a lot of room to fill up if needed. Shipping is $9.50 for priority,delivery confirmation,insured. This is definitely one of a kind!
