INSIDE YOUR AGE OF INNOCENCE GILDED YEARS THEME BOX…
ThIs adorable kiss lock purse is reminiscent of the tiny purses that were a hallmark of Victorian fashion and a necessity in an era when dresses did not include pockets. Ornately made using fancy fabrics, this fashion accessory offered an opportunity to show off handiwork, and held calling cards and handkerchiefs. Purse frames were often ornately made of gold, silver, amber, or ivory, and heavily embossed in filigree scroll. The kiss lock emerged in the early 1900s.
