MINT 14k GOLD HEAVY C1890 PURSE POCKETBOOK
is a fine, mint condition, Tiffany double
handbag or purse, dating from the 1890's or
so. It is solid, not plated, 14k gold, and
weighs just over 6 troy ounces or 188.5 grams.
The purse is actually a coin purse, inside
a larger pocketbook. The bag, with out chain
measures 5 1/8 inches wide and 4 inches deep.
It is stamped 14K on both the inner and outer
purse frames along with "MADE FOR TIFFANY
& CO."on the inside frame of the
attached coin purse. The frames of both purses
are engraved with identical floral designs,
and are quite elegant. The inside frame of
the large purse also has engraved "Mrs
W.R. Mygatt Chicago". No one of course
would "scrap" this for its gold
content, but its weight 188 grams or 121.29
pennyweight of gold means that the pure gold
value of the purse is about $4200. There is
a number 3426 ingraved on the inside of the
frame. Please note again, that the bag is
in mint condition. ID=14KGOLDPURSE1
