LOVELY DOLLS "SURPRISE" PURSE, VICTORIAN

 I have here for you a lovely antique Dolls purse which had previously been on display in a doll collection for many years.   It is a very unusual item.  One would expect it to open and just see a purse, but as  you can see from the pictures below it actually unfolds and there are two "pocket" compartments inside and a loop for a pencil.  So coins could be kept in one little pocket and notes - or love letters perhaps - in the other compartment.  The pencil is missing, but it should not be too difficult to find another slim pencil to slot into the little loop.  The silk inside is in really good condition.  It has a chain for the doll to hold.  The outside is velvet, and as this is a Victorian item, as one would expect this item has been used and areas of the velvet have rubbed away down to the base material. It is particularly worn at the top edge and the bottom edge and parts of the front. As it has wear the price is much lower, and makes it a rather good buy!  However it is still a lovely little item, and looks great with a doll - it does suit several sized dolls.   I think this would have originally have been an expensive little item, as the edges are gilt metal to protect from knocks and this gilt metal has also been made into a shield shaped fastener at the centre front.

 It measures about 3.25 inches x 2.5 inches.  Something a little different for one of your dolls - or it would also look good with a Teddy!   If you require any further details - do please ask.  If you wish to purchase, just click on "Contact Us" button below....

This Victorian "surprise" Purse is priced at just 49.
