- Item Not Available
A Victorian evening bag! Comprised of dark brown leather, a brass repousse edge and metal edged coin purse. The perfect bag to take to a concert. The interior is neatly organized into 5 separate compartments. The central compartment appears to have been created for coins and money. It has a metal frame and a nice metal latch to keep it safely closed. The button hook is metal and has a few spots of tarnish. The purse closes with a beautiful brass button latch that is in excellent working condition. The brass repousse edge features an ornate floral pattern. Good condition. The brass is in perfect condition as is the metal edge of the coin purse compartment. There are two small tears at the back opening edge of the purse (one on each side). All of the leather inside shows scuffing and signs of wear. These problems are not visible from the outside of the little purse which is in good condition with only a small amount of wear to the leather at the sides. A bit musty smelling. Circa: 1800's. Composition: Leather, brass and metal. Size: 6 inches x 2 1/4 inches.
