Victorian handbag dating to. late 1800’s- early 1900s. Antique Purse has a metal frame, precious jewels of amber and a metal tassel. The gold brocade is faded and has darken with age. It is marked Trinity Plate and it is very collectible. It was purchased from West, TX estate; original owner.
Trinity Plate frames were custom handmade, so this purse is probably a one of a kind piece. According to printed information that originally came with Trinity bags, a section read "Every frame under this trade mark is handmade and guaranteed to be finished with a deposit of 24 Karat Gold."
You can see the original gold color of the fabric in the protected folds of purse (last photo). The gold metal frame is ornate and goes completely around the purse; the bottom has a metal tassels, metal rosette and same amber stone as clasps. The claspe is heavy metal and ornate with 5 amber stones. The satin lining is frayed. This is definitely a beautiful display piece; or the fabric could be replaced since the metal frame is so heavy and beautiful. The loop chain is 17” with an 8 ½” loop. The purse is 4” wide at bottom and 5” long.
