A very nice antique all sterling silver late Victorian purse, c. 1895.  See detailed measurements above.


Inside frame the purse is hallmarked:  Sterling ~ S Nordlinger & Sons, Los Angeles, Cal.  This jeweler established their first store in Los Angeles, c. 1869, continuing business until apx. the turn of the century, when they merged with Brock & Co.


The purse features the desirable long paper clip style chain link handle, with a single oval link connecting each elongated link.   The high quality mesh is fine and smooth; no lining.  Secure kiss style closure.

This purse is in very nice estate condition.  I examined the links with a magnifying glass and believe that the links remain securely in place around entire frame perimeter and they are very close up around the hinges. There is definitely no large gap between hinge and links, as is commonly seen on old mesh bags.  In the body of the purse there may be a minor loose link or two; it is difficult to tell because each link is interlinked with at least four others, so if one becomes loosened it is not easily discernable.  Hinges operate very well, as does clasp, which aligns well and snaps securely shut.  All parts appear to be original.


It is a nice substantial bag, quite heavy for its size, weighing a considerable 4.31 troy ounces.


According to readily available online information Nordlinger Jewelers was a well respected fine jewelry store, touted to be one of the early
Angeleno businesses, selling good quality, high end merchandise, including Tiffany and Patek Philippe to mention a few.
