ANTIQUE SILVERY GREY METAL CHAIN MAIL (160907B)

DESCRIPTION
This is a wonderful piece of history - a double sided piece of chain mail metal from an Edwardian purse.
The chain mail is silvery grey in color and is constructed from a complex pattern of links.
There are 2 sides to the chain mail. One side has a row of multiple dangles.
The bottom of the piece has a scalloped edging constructed from half circles of the chain mail.
The photos show the chain mail attached to its original frame and handle.
The chain mail is heavy for its size.
It weighs 132 grams.
The chain mail can be deconstructed and various parts of it could be used for jewelry and dress up costumes.
Some of the photos show the original purse. The purse was no longer functional.

MEASUREMENTS
The front and back measure 7 inches / 18 cm across the bottom and 5.5 inches / 14 cm from top to bottom. There are 2 pieces of this size (the front and the back), but only one scalloped edge with 7 half circles.

AGE
The purse was Edwardian - 1900 - 1910.

CONDITION
The chain mail has some holes, but most of it is usable. The dangles are all fine and the half circles are all intact. One is partly detached from the chain mail.

Items are shipped with Australia Post.

Additional

Please don't ask for a discount. I probably won't respond to your request.

All of the goods I sell are vintage and most will have had prior owners. For this reason, they are likely to show some signs of age or wear. This is normal and I will only mention specific issues that I think you should know about before deciding to purchase.
