Lovely silver antique purse with an embossed decorated frame, ball clasp, pretty fringed edge and very fine mesh work. It is stamped on the interior with 800. There is a small ring to one side of the purse to which you could attach a chain or thin ribbon. The 800 stands for 800 grade silver or 800 parts of silver per 1000 parts. This standard of silver was heavily throughout Europe including France, Belgium and Germany for many years. Any vintage jewellery stamped 800 is likely be European in origin.
