Antique, Art Nouveau / Art Deco ladie''s bag / purse. Gilded, Sterling silver set with genuine sapphires, rubies, emeralds, pearls and other gemstones. Made in Germany, late 19th to early 20th century. Approximately 9 inches accross widest part. Weighs approx 265grams. Cloth bag with flowers, fruit and foliage in pretty shades of pinks and quiet greens on a golden/beige ground. The inside has a peach silk lining in excellent condition with pockets on either side for holding compact or comb. The frame of the bag is exceptional: A central basket of fruit with doves on either side in an octagonal reserve. On either side is a gorgeous nude half figure of a woman, her body tapering to a cornucopia. Surrounded by garlands of flowers, set with gemstones. We tested the stones with a modern, electronic tester and they are a mixture of various genuine stones - many sapphires, rubies, emeralds and also other stones such as topaz etc. The reverse side of the bag has the identical design, but is not set with stones. The bag is opened / closed with a clasp (push it in) that is set with a very large cabochon sapphire. THe terminals at either end also each contain a large cabochon sapphire. One side of the frame has engraved STERLING SILVER GERMANY. Despite some signs of age, the bag and frame are in good condition. I did not find any missing stones.
