Mint Mesh


For the longest time I have been searching for an antique mesh Chatelaine purse. Antique mesh and chainmail purses are easy to find online or at antiques stores/fairs, but I am pretty fussy and wanted it to be perfect. As I wanted it for jewellery purposes, it had to be small and, importantly, had to have a finger loop so that I could add a chain and wear it as a pendant, or add a pin and wear it as a brooch . A couple of weeks ago, my patience was rewarded as I came across the perfect sized purse in mint condition. The design is rather plain, but I love it and the fact that it's in amazing condition. The hallmarks along the frame tell me it is from London, 1910.

On a side note, the trousers I'm wearing are the AA 'riding pant', however wearing them I get less of an equestrian vibe and more of a deep-sea diving vibe. Not entirely sure how comfortable I am with this...
