    Thank you, I live in Durban, South Africa...havent seen another one like this...do you think it could be Asian?

    If anything Indian with the elephant..but that's more the flapper era again. Since England was ruling India at the time...

    I have one of these too, with a lion rather than an elephant. FUCHS & BEIDERHASE of New York made purses with a similar gated (?), lattice (?) opening, but I can't find anything quite the same on the net.
