The body of the purse measures approx. 3 3/4 x 8 inches. This piece has survived many years and was most likely stored in a dry place.
It was well loved and has some vintage wear. The enamel on the mesh is in very good shape, with minimal wear. The metal beads, however, have a lot of the pink enamel worn off. There is one detached ring at the bottom, creating a small hole.
If you are a handy with jewelry-making or metal work you may be able to fix this very easily. All of the links appear to be attached to the frame. There is some vintage patina/wear and silver polish remnants to the silver tone frame and may be other minor vintage wear, such as fine scratches.
The purse can be a little tought to push open at times. Overall, this is a beautiful vintage piece. These vintage mesh purses are like a piece of art and look beautiful hanging on a wall or in a frame. I've always thought of them as a piece of jewelry for your hand.
