VERY GOOD. This French Silver chainmail chatelaine purse is in very good condition. The 800 Silver has accrued a gorgeous patina which illuminates her floral detailing across the top band. Unfortunately over her lifetime some of the chain mail has become unwoven on two areas during the front and a small hole at the back to the bottom. Although these holes are present, they are small enough that any change you put inside cannot come out. Aside from this, the chainmail is still neatly linked and looks impressive. Her clasp shut firmly and with a satisfying 'click'. She is such a cutie, packed with Victorian charm!
