This is a small Gate Top Change Purse made in the 1920s. Also known as a Beggars Bag, it is 3 1/2 inches tall and 2 inches wide. The Gate Top opens to 2 1/2 inches in diameter. The gold tone beads are crocheted into the fabric and match the bead applique on the gate hinges. The attached gold tone chain is 10 inches in length. The only imperfection that can be found is the round snap-on cap is not perfectly symetrical; although it does snap completely and securely over the top of the gate. As such it should be considered in Very Good to Excellent Condition.

This rare little gate top change purse would make an excellent addition to someone's collection of 1920's Beggars Bags or Gate Top Purses.
