This small leather purse was just recently found in a box of my grandmother's belongings. Unfortunately she is no longer with us, or I'm sure she'd have a wonderful story behind it. The inside seems to be made of silk, and the brass clasp has a rusted mark that looks like it says "patented for". Does anyone have any idea of the age or how I should clean and store it?

    Vetraio either both of us never sleep, or somehow we have managed to have the same sleep cycle:). Thank you very much for the love.

    I maybe wrong but I am thinking maybe not so old? 1920's? Very cool piece!

    Thinking Victorian. Not sure what you can/should do to clean it up.
    Vetraio lives in Sydney so (assume your in NA) he's up early if you are up late.

    Always up:) Thanks Moonstone and Amberose, I'm hoping there's a way to clean it because it sure does stink:)

    Hahaha, just thought you were putting a shine to it. Ask Blunderbuss, he'd probably know.
