i've saved this one today
the former owner just wanted to throw the 375 - 9k gold parts of the purse into the melting
a real shame that so many people destroy all these cultural treasures today for gold....
it's a "Moritz Maedler" purse - my guess is from ca 1900-1920
„Königlich Sächsischen concessionirten Koffer- und Taschen-Fabrik Moritz Mädler“ was founded 1850
From 1886 the factory has been located in Leipzig.
in 1889 "Moritz Mädler" became purveyor to the Royal Saxonian Household.
