Antique steel beaded coin purse with elephant and cool tie tack button closure.

Back of Antique steel beaded coin purse with elephant and cool tie tack button closure.
 

For the love of a child, was why this  small French Cut Steel purse was made, and the love of a child is probably why it's all a fray.  In silver, brass and green, it once pictured an Elephant.  It's crazy heavy for such a tiny thing, which is probably why it's broken so many a string, not sure it it can be restored.  It's got a fascinating closure, it works like a tie tack, it has a button encased in copper with a tack, and a copper back that you squeeze 2 little prongs to open to slip over the tack and you let go of the prongs to close.    (2 1/2" x 2")

I don't believe that this purse is restorable, but it's worth it's weight for the beads alone, plus the neat little button tie tack doohicky!!
