Indulge yourself with this luxurious, weighty miniature French vintage gold mesh dress purse. Amazing craftsmanship and meticulous construction make for a very fine accessory. Woven gold, the piece dates to the 1940s.
The clasp, set with two sapphire cabochons of .20 carats each, opens the purse to reveal a hinged divider for two compartments. Overall, the item is substantial in feel and is appointed with an “O” ring for suspending from a chain, belt or other accessory.
Of 18k white and yellow, the mesh is a visual maze of interwoven gold with a two tone geometric pattern. Pause to think of the hundreds and hundreds of hours that went into creating this almost entirely by hand.
