Description

A delicate and unusual yellow gold chainmail coin purse for your reticule or outfit. Perfect for those guineas you wish to spend in the emporium—or the tokens you won at whist. With a cut-cornered rectangular form in delicate gold mesh, the purse is suspended from a hinged frame with ivy-leafed decoration.

The frame has three hallmarks that are unclear, so the estimated date is based upon the style. Dangling from the bottom of the purse are four little decorative gold balls. The ring on the hinged frame allows this to be worn around the neck, too, on a ribbon or chain.

Mother-of-pearl tokens included, so you can place that first bet on a winning hand.
