This is an antique Victorian mourning 14K yellow gold (tested) charm in the shape of a purse with a fancy handle. It opens to reveal two sides of hair under glass note: a few strands of the hair are sticking out from under the glass and seems to be quite thick/coarse...
Possibly from a beloved animal? The purse has an engraved design on both sides.
The charm is 7/8 inch high, 1/2 inch wide, 1/4 inch deep at the bottom, and weighs 3.1 grams. It is in excellent antique condition: there is one tiny dent in front.
