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
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
