This beautiful necklace features an antique hallmarked sterling silver mesh purse on a sterling silver ball chain. It is in excellent condition and is a totally unique and stunning necklace.

Metal mesh bags became popular in the 1890s and remained popular well into the early 20th century thanks in part to the invention of a mesh-making machine in 1908. The purse has a ring suggesting that it was part of a chatelaine. A chatelaine is a decorative belt hook or clasp worn at the waist with a series of chains suspended from it from which a lady would hang important items such as keys, stamp cases, and watches. 

The purse measures 4cm x 6cm. The total length of the chain is 84cm.
