  • SILVER COIN PURSE SHELL SOUVENIR ART NOUVEAU ARTS&CRAFTS 1890 to 1910


    • As per eBay requirements, we guarantee this to be original, genuine and authentic.
    • By " antique " we mean over 100 years of age.
      Antique genuine Art Nouveau period souvenir silver coin purse in an embellished clam shell shape:
    • Designed in the shape of an embellished clam shell.
    • This has the French word SOUVENIR on the front.
    • The interior has 3 compartments made of silk; two corners have detached as shown in the detailed photos below.
    • This closes tightly, the hinges work, and the closure functions.
    • The piece is marked on the interior rim with a stamp we cannot make out, as shown in the detailed photos below.
    • The piece is guaranteed to be genuine period French Art Nouveau Style Liberté.
    • The design is a quintessential transitional embellished clam shell motif that occurred in the decorative arts all over Europe, when the Beaux Arts period overlapped with, and transitioned into, the Art Nouveau period.

    • This piece is guaranteed to be over one hundred years of age if you are reading this in 2011.
    • This is not a modern reproduction, it is not a recent copy, and it is not a fake.
    • If you're concerned about authenticity, our accuracy, and how we know what we know, please visit our website before emailing us.
    • Please see all the photos, and please, don't skim over this listing; read it carefully.
    • Thank you for your attention.

      • SIZE:
      • This measures overall approximately 3 inches x 2 inches x 0.75 inch // 7,5 cm x 5,5 cm x 2 cm. >

        ABOUT SILVER ALLOYS
      • This silver metal coin purse is constructed using a silver alloy of some sort but we don't know the exact composition of the silver metal alloy used to make it; we aren't metallurgists and cannot be certain. This is not "silver colored" .
      • Alloys are combinations of metals used for practical and artistic reasons such as durability; using 100% of any metal might make the product entirely too soft to endure. The term "sterling" refers to a specific amount of silver in an alloy; specifically an alloy of silver that is 925 parts pure silver and 75 parts copper, thereby increasing the strength of the silver.
      • We have no way to determine the specific amount of the various metals used in these antique foreign alloys used to make these foreign antique pieces because there are no alloy marks indicating their specific alloy content. There is a substantial and requisite amount of silver and other precious metal content in the alloys used, however exactly how much silver and how much of what other metals, what percent of the alloy is silver and what percent what other metals, we honestly can't guess. These rare antique items should not be bought solely for their metal content, or be judged solely based on their metal content; their value rests on facts far more complex and intrinsic.


      CONDITION:
    • By "antique " we mean over 100 years of age. By "vintage"we mean between 50 and 100 years of age. This piece is made of matter and it is OLD; this piece is guaranteed to be over one hundred years of age if you are reading this in 2011 and this means it is NOT NEW. This is not a recent reproduction, it is not a modern copy, and it is not a fake. Please see all the photos.
    • There are some signs of age and usage including but not limited to the fact that the interior has 3 compartments made of silk and two corners have detached as shown in the detailed photos below. There is minor overall surface wear, minor small dings to the body, minor oxidization of the metals, and there may be other signs or indicators of age and usage that we missed because we aren't specifically trained to see them.
    • The condition is good, there's nothing functionally wrong with this, and the condition is exactly as shown in the photos; please look at all the photos carefully and read this description carefully.
    • We don't know the precise composition of the silver and other metal alloys used to make this piece; we aren't metallurgists and cannot be certain.
    • This has not been examined microscopically. We have not taken this apart or put it back together, we've not subtracted anything from it nor added anything to it that was not already there when we got it. We have not cleaned it.
    • It is impossible to divine exactly what information a buyer might want. It is the buyer's responsibility to carefully scrutinize a purchase before buying. Please consider your purchase carefully. We are happy to help in any way we can by answering your questions to the best of our ability and furnishing additional specifics upon request. Our eBay sales are final sales; there are no returns, refunds, or exchanges. Ask any questions before you buy.

      A WORD ABOUT OLD THINGS
    • Wishful thinking will not make old things new. If something about this bothers you, don't buy it. We realize this may be the first time many of you are seeing these things. If you want a new piece, or want this to look differently from the way it looks now, here, then please don't even think of buying this. We've had buyers be disappointed afterwards because things are exactly as we say they are. This really is exactly as we're describing it; it is exactly as shown in the numerous photos below. Please see all the photos. Please read all of this listing carefully. Old things are not for those of you who disparage signs of aging or for those of you certain that American manufacturing is the only way anything can be made in this universe. We want you to be happy with your purchases. If something about this bothers you, don't buy it. So many of you whine about the condition of old things after you get them, even though we tell you the old condition explicitly, precisely, upfront, and repeatedly. Wishful thinking will not make old things new. We realize it may come as a surprise that many of us prefer things old, just as they are. If you want this to be new, please, look elsewhere. Thank you for your attention.
