Object Name Bag, Evening
Description Small oval-shaped black evening bag with silver hardware and clasp. Two short handles are made of the same fabric as the purse. Purse was constructed by gathering the top of the fabric tightly and tucking it into the silver hardware in the front and the back. Purse is lined with black fabric and has a small pocket inside.

Similar purses may be found in the era between c.1880 - 1900; however nothing is found here to indicate it is from that era.
