Inside of Vintage brass basket weaved box purse with lucite lid.
 

This is a weaved metal (I believe it to be brass) basket box purse. 

The lid is pearlish in color with a kind of marbling effect.

It is lined with a gold and white striped fabric that is in very good shape with no staining, rips, or holes.

The handles also appear to be brass, they are riveted, fold up to carry and fold down to allow access.  They show the most wear and tear, the finish worn off in many spots and or tarnished.  The brass closure snaps over a little ball.  Though the inside of the purse is almost immaculate, the outside is in need of cleaning/polishing. 

I could find no makers mark, but these type of purses became popular in the 1950's.  It measures 3 1/2 inches wide,3 1/2 inches deep, and a couple of hairs over 9 inches long.
