Victorian German Silver Purse dates to turn of the century.
Victorian German Silver Purse presents a style that may date back to the early 20th century. Signed on the inside clasp: “GERSILMESH”, the exterior mesh work is in very good condition. With the exception of one missing bead at the bottom, the mesh is in good condition. However, the inside lining shows significant erosion to the leather.
The purse measures 4 1/2″ across and 4″ from top to bottom. The clasp shows astonishing craftsmanship.
This purse shows in collection books and has “book value.” Ideal for collectors.
As a result of the leather erosion to the lining, the purse is in FAIR to GOOD condition.
