A LOVELY FRENCH
is a really nice find and I think my collectors will
agree. It is so useful for a trunk or for a doll
to hold. It is absolutely wonderful quality, and
condition. The Brevete (registered) mark is
incised on the main clasp and on the internal clasp.
The two sides are indentical and have a red silk base
with silk netting which is embroidered with cream, green
and blue threads with gold thread also running through.
There is a strong "piano" hinge to the base (always a
sign of quality), and the purse opens by raising the top
clasp. Inside is red watered silk lining.
The internal area has three main compartments with a
fourth compartment which is reached by opening another
little Brevete marked clasp. Absolutely amazing detail
for a miniature purse.
