There is also a serial number on the inside as well as stamped "Rd".
It measures 9cm tall by 8cm wide. The silver mount has a hunting scene detail and the clip has a lovely cherub and lovely design surrounding. this piece is offered in good antique condition with wear in keeping with age. the dog clip and the purse closure are in good working order.
