SILVER PLATED DOLLS
PURSE ON CHAIN - LOVELY SHAPE.
This is a nice
item. What a lovely shape this little purse is!
It is silver plate, and incised EPNS on the rear -
deliberately so, as the stamp looks like a silver
hallmark unless one looks more closely. This often
happened with good EPNS. As well as the great
shape, I rather like the chain, which is intricate and a
little different - and it also finishes with a finger ring.
The silver plate, as is more often than not the case,
has some wear, predominently to the centre front and
centre rear - each patch the size roughly of a penny
