Absolutely gorgeous hand-painted fine mesh and enamel evening purse. The outside of the purse features a colorful chainmail mesh and fringe, a hinged gold frame with ornate blue enamel decoration and a stylized interlocking clasp, and gold-tone bar link chain handle. The inside of the purse has a baby blue silk lining and a gold medallion compact mirror. There are some notable imperfections, including a few small holes in the mesh, wearing of the enamel, color fading/metal discoloration, and tears in the silk lining. With that being said, the purse is still incredibly striking, well made, and in overall good condition. Looks very similar to evening bags made be "Evan" but there is no hallmark to confirm.
