This is a unique offering. The body of this purse is past its prime, so I am selling it for the frame ONLY, which is magnificent! It is French and features 7 different hand carved cameos. I have never seen anything quite like it. I wish I knew how to make purses and it would never leave my possession. But, sadly, I don't.
The frame is 8" wide x 1"deep on the front with the cameos x 1/2" flat on the top. The cameos measure about 5/8" x 1/2".
The piece is signed on the underside with the name of the owner:
Jessie G. Shapiro, 803 North Elm Drive, Beverly Hills, California
and with the name of the maker or the shop from which it was purchased:
Scherick, 374 Rue St. Honore, Paris
The clasp works great. The metal frame is gold color with great design detail.

Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about shipping price prior to purchase. Buy several things! I am always happy to combine shipments for a reduced shipping price. Prudence prevails, however. I won't ship breakables with hard, heavy items. Note that I have not checked the option of combining shipping only because the weight and the size of my items vary greatly and it is impossible to give a good discount with a guess.
