Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
This lovely cream metal mesh bag is different to the others I have seen from the same era.
The frame is cream coloured enamel with10 pink roses included on the frame on both sides. Very feminine and pretty, very shabby chic.
The purse is 7" (17.5cm) wide at the base X 6 1/2" (16.5cm) to the top of the clasp.
The handle is brass snake chain 13" (32cm) long and sturdily attached to brass holes at both ends. There are two tiny chips on the edge of the cream enamel on the frame on one side.
The metal mesh is in very good condition - with the enamel chipped off on eleven of the small mesh plates. (yes I counted them with my loupe! To the eye it doesn't look much and I would patch it with a bit of acrylic or enamel paint and a small brush if it bothers you.)
There is also a small patch of red noticeable on the front of the bag - this is lipstick! I have removed it and taken an "after" photo which is the last pic.
The clasp is firm and the inside is pale cream silk which is very clean with one pocket and a label which says ""Seraton original west german mesh bag"
A lovely and unusual bag.
