Antique Victorian Coin Purse Steel Beaded Raised Metalwork Frame Clip and Chain
Description: A beautiful, unique Victorian Beaded Coin Purse with raised, die stamp metalwork on the frame and clip, possibly tin or pewter. The metal chain extends from the top frame and is interlocked ¼ of distance down connecting to an ornate belt clip. The purse in dark yellow with double-sided, tiny, steel beaded work. A twisted clasp is soldered to the frame, which also confirms the originality. Since this purse has use and age over the years, it no longer is usable due to areas on the sides being torn and a portion of the beaded work being missing and loose. Even with this, it still is an early Victorian era collectible which would showcase beautifully, preserved in that special place.
