From an Estate in Southern Calif. One side shows a Maiden with a hat holding some flowers, and wearing an apron over her skirt.. Her clothing looks German or. Her surroundings are lush, and a cottage is in the background.
The other side is also awesome. It is a floral arrangement, peonies, roses, sweet williams, etc. With a background of white with sparkling silver beads. The interior is also in excellent condition. I has a divided interior with an articulated metal arched divider.
The interior is kid leather - no tears, or rips or creepy stains. Some slight discoloration where the metal. The purse measures from the top of the clasp to the botom of the fringe 9.5.
The width is 7.25 at its widest towards the bottom. The chain handle has a drop of 7.5 from the chain to the top of the 2-ball clasp. The frame itself is decorated with a high relief decoration.
