Sadly someone else beat me to it. I'm kinda bummed. I really liked the clasp part of the purse.

Well hopefully it will provide some inspiration for a new project Wink

Well, I don't know about inspiration as it was a pretty standard clasp-frame purse, a couple of which I've made before, but I'll certainly have to keep my eye out for another similar piece.

Sorry I don't recall exactly, the price was in Euros and had a 3 in front of two other numbers, so between $400-$550 these days.

Y'know, that might just be crazy enough to work!

If you want to get one of these check out ebay (UK) they come up quite often and vary greatly in quality and price. I have restored about half a dozen over the years, for customers, some sterling some plated and they are a little tricky but worth the effort.
