#1733 - Jeweled Trinity Plate Dance Purse

This early 20th century Trinity Plate dance purse is a rare find.  The frame is set with green faceted stones, matched by additional stones on the cap of the tassel.  It is unusual to find the original tassel on one of these purses.  Even more unusual are the petit point inserts surrounded by gold filigree.  I've never seen different but clearly matching panels on one of these purses before. Additional green glass stones in the chain. Silk lining with pockets on the inside has been professionally replaced using the original shattered lining as a pattern to restore the interior to its original condition. Marked "Trinity Plate" on interior of frame. Measures 3" wide by 4" tall.   8 1/2" with tassel.  Chain adds another 8".
