What do you think about holding the coins in gold purse? It might sound a bit ironic, but it’s not a question of purposes, but style. As designer Suzanne Mounts said gold purse is the essence of luxury for any woman at the turn of the century – or today! So, if you agree with her, you can choose some of stunning purse from her Antique Victorian Gold Change Purse Collection.

The other stunning purse is marked “375” on the interior lip and also on the hang link which denotes European origin.

This piece is 3″ long at its longest point and 2 1/4″ wide at it widest, while its price is $3,320. Apparently due to the rubies.
