Here is a wonderful Victorian mesh purse with leather lining.  It is marked German Silver on the frame.  This piece is currently on display at the Vintage Touch shop space in Antique Crossroads, Hagerstown, MD. If interested, drop me an e mail and I will transfer the piece to the Vintage Touch online store for ease of purchase.

These are gorgeous! I'm a sucker for a pretty evening bag, though I rarely get the opportunity to use them. Here's one that's beyond wild: a mink and alligator Louis Vuitton "Le Fabuleux" bag from 2004. I think the department head said that only seven were ever made! Heritage just launched a Handbags & Luxury Accessories category, and the first auction is Dec. 13 in Dallas. Check it out at HA.com/5048.
