Black Velvet Cocktail Purse Gold & Silver Bullion Marrakesh Embroidery

Vintage 1930s - 1940s black velvet cocktail purse lavishly embroidered with gold and silver metallic bullion. Mint new / old condition. This is embroidered ALL OVER the outside, not just the front.

Measurements: 7" x 4-1/4" when closed. Snap closure.

Style: Envelope, fold over with 2 inside pockets.

Fabric: velvet, Lined in black satin.

Mint, unused condition with the metallic thread showing appropriate patina for this very vintage piece.

Excellent handbag; a wonderful example of the hand worked bullion embroidered pieces that were made in the Marrakesh area of Morocco, India and Persia in the 30s and 40s. The style of the embroidery is called Zardozi which literally means "golden stitches.

The hand done embroidery in silver and gold bullion with wonderful dimension, is fabulous. Old ethnic embroideries are becoming very scarce and extremely expensive.

This kind of hand work is being lost as young people in these ethnic areas loose interest in continuing the traditions. This is time consuming work, done by hand and needle with intricate stitching.

Pieces like this in immaculate condition are getting hard to find.
