It certainly doesn't look modern to me. As stated above, it has the look of a purse bar.

Well done on finding it.
Once again shows the importance of getting photos to the collective.
Not that i would have known but everyone else did and photographic confirmation from The Gleaner , proved it.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.
