My wife found these at market this weekend in Atlanta. They are small old purses that have been fashioned into necklaces. The mother of pearl purse has the name Revet on the silver case while the other purse is not marked. The metal in both purses appears to be silver plate as I see no other marks on them. The smaller purse has a gold wash on the inside.

This is an interesting way to repurpose old purses. The dealer said that this size purse was also collected by doll collectors for their dolls

Charming.

I think "revet" may be "brevet," French for "patent."
