    Looks like a type of one. I found one years ago and took a while to get every piece out of the whole. Very cool victorian find!

    I'm surprised that purse isn't smothered with grass roots. I found something similar about a year ago, although not intact, and I ended up tossing it cuz the roots were so entangled in it. Did you have to clean it before these pics?
