This is a Dorset purse which was so popular in the 50's. The outside is made from gold tone and white metal strips in a basketweave pattern. The handle is made from the same metals. The bottom is gold tone only in an open weave design. The front clasp is an "S" hook on a chain which threads through the metal hinge.
