Product Description

ANTIQUE 14K GOLD AND STERLING SILVER COIN PURSE
WOW!!! THIS IS A ANTIQUE 14K GOLD AND STERLING SILVER COIN PURSE. IT WOULD DATE BACK TO THE EARLY 1900'S. THIS BEAUTY IS A VERY DECORATIVE PIECE OF HISTORY. I HAVE BEEN CAREFUL NOT TO CLEAN IT AT ALL. IF YOU WANT TO REMOVE THE PATINA IT WILL SHINE NEW LIKE A "BABIES BOTTOM". THE BODY OF THIS ANTIQUE COIN PURSE IS 3.00" LONG AND 1.40" WIDE. IT WEIGHTS ABOUT 90 gr. IT HAS SEEN THREE USES OVER TIME.

FIRST: IT WAS FASHIONABLE TO CARRY THIS SMALL PURSE WITH PUSH-SLOTS FOR A NICKEL, DIME AND QUARTER, CHANGE SUCH AS NEED FOR TROLLEY RIDES. THEY DIDN'T HAVE A LOT OF CARS AT THAT TIME.

SECOND: IT WAS POPULAR USE BY THE DANCING GIRLS DURING THE DEPRESSION OF THE LATE 1930'S. "A DIME FOR A DANCE MISTER".

THIRD: IT AGAIN WAS TAKEN OUT OF RETIREMENT DURING WWII TO CARRY THE RATION TOKENS.

PRESENTLY IT IS A UNIQUE AND UNUSUAL PART OF THE PAST AND WILL BE CHERISHED BY YOUR FAMILY IN THE PRESENT AND FUTURE AS IT HAS BEEN SOMEONE'S TREASURE IN THE PAST.
