DescriptionHenry Clay: Superb Change Purse with Colored Transfer-on-Glass Inset Portrait and Mother of Pearl Panels. Originally from the legendary U. I. "Chick" Harris collection, it is the only example we have ever encountered. Basically in beautiful condition, there is some chipping in the field of the portrait and waviness or lifting in the colored decal. This does not detract from the visual appeal of Clay's image. Measures 2" x 3". The silk-lined interior has three compartments. Minor looseness to top of rear panel.
