Napoleon Iii Pique Shell Purse Abalone Gold Silver Inlay Brevete Sgdg Paris:
$175


For your consideration is this exquisite Napoleon III era purse made by Brevete, Paris. It is signed as such on the inside "Brevete SGDG"and dates to circa 1850-1870. It is made of "faux" tortoiseshell and is delicately inlayed with abalone shell, silver, and gold in multiple colors. The back of the piece is in very good condition, but has a scratch. The front of the piece has some small areas of separation with the inlay and tortoise shell. On the inside of the purse the lining has deteriorated along the crease and one side has been glued to the case. The coin compartment with the latch still works well. Those issues aside, it is still a stunning piece and could probably easily be repaired by someone with know how. None of the inlay is missing. It truly is a fantastic piece, rich with history, and almost 200 years old.
Please examine photos carefully as they are part of the description.
