Hi

I wondered if anyone can knows how much this purse would be worth? I think the mark says JHW, Birmingham, and I think the date is 1910. There are no dents in it.

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi Katherine

A very nice purse. It was made by John Henry Wynn and assayed in Birmingham 1910-12.

John Henry Wynn entered his mark in 1899 and resided at Hylton Street, Birmingham. He was a mker of small silver pieces such as vestas, napkin rings, etc.

As to the value, as usual, somewhat difficult without touching the piece. I would guess somewhere btween 40 and 100 pounds.
