Antique Velvet Victorian Evening Purse Circa. 1880. German silver (nickel) frame with incredible detail work. Original black velvet, over 125 years old, worn slightly around the edges. Original purple lining is worn at bottom, but certainly usable. Purse is large enough for cell phone and blackberry. Small interior pocket for mirror. Measures 8 1/2 inches high and 8 1/2 inches wide. An absolute classic. In very good original condition, considering its age.
