Art Nouveau Celluloid Purse Decoration~Very Unique

This is absolutely fantastic. This large decorative distinctively art nouveau designed piece of celluloid is just beautiful and the most unique art nouveau piece that I have ever seen. I believe it may have been attached to a handbag, but I am not certain of that. It has the surrounding woven rhinestones, which are actually very pretty, but the woven fabric has given way. But with a little work, a new backing could be applied and this piece could glorify a new handbag, a dress or whatever your heart desires. This is a large piece of celluloid measuring 4 5/8" by 2 7/8" not including the rhinestone strips. It is in wonderful condition but does have one rhinestone that appears dark, it may have some dirt under it. I have not tried to clean it. The piece also has a slight curve to it, which may be original to the piece. It is a glorious and most unique art nouveau piece, one that most likely is a very rare piece to find.
