SOLD Victorian 9ct Gold Coin Purse Charm Pendant

The purse itself is made from wonderful gold chainmail that has been carefuly woven together. To the top is a lovely gold frame with a classic 'kiss' clasp. The purse hangs from a gold chain that meets at the top with a bale large enough to feed a chain through.
