A Charming Antique French Gilt Silver Evening Bag By Vaguer.
We normally do not propose these items, but the fineness of the work drew us to this lovely piece.
The Gilt on the silver is intact and the chainmail work as well which is rather rare. So is the fact that the bag holds 2 compartments and that it is big enough to contain a phone as shown on photo number 8.
The Open work chiseling on the upper part is lovely, showing floral baskets and scrolls as well perfectly chiseled drapes. It is truly charming and usable!
The Hallmark is Boar’s head for small silver objects, 2nd Title Silver, for Paris 1838/1919.
The Makers Mark is for Alexandre VAGUER. It shows his last name spelled out topped by and A with a Star underneath.
The Mark was registered on January 15th 1884. His workshop was located 114 Rue du Temple in the Marais area of Paris.
