Victorian 10k Gold Purse Charm

Sold Sold
  • Description
    An unusual charm from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This wonderful 10k gold piece portrays a miniature purse, crafted in charming 3-dimensional detail. The purse is decorated with a line of 5 turquoise stones on one side and 5 small rubies on the other, complete with a "quilted" pattern and wire work details. Both sides are identical aside from the stones. The piece hangs from a swinging handle at the top, which also hangs from a simple gold bail. A very fun and unique keepsake piece, it would look lovely worn on a chain!

    Measurements: The piece hangs approximately 1 1/4" in total length, including the handle. The body of the purse measures 1/2" tall, 5/8" wide, and 1/4" thick.

    Condition: The overall condition of the piece is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting. The stones are secure in their setting. The gold has bloomed and shows some patina, which is typical for antique pieces.
