This is a lovely, hand embroidered French made purse from decade long ago. The purse itself is a black fabric (feels like silk) with an embroidered floral motif done in many colors. Other Made in France purses that look similar have the floral designs described as "tambour" embroidery, however, those who are familiar with this stitch will have to decide if this is tambour embroidered as well. The clasp is covered in fancy, mostly white seed bead decorations, with a gold tone frame and 10 inch chain. The inside also feels like black silk, with a 3.75 by 2.75 pocket, including a two sided mirror. Very sweet!
Measurements: The purse is 6.5 inches across and 4.75 inches tall with 1.5 inches of width across the bottom. Fully opened, it is 4 inches wide. It is just large enough to hold your essentials.
Condition: The purse is in very good condition with minimal signs of wear to the silk or to the metal. Please use the zoom feature to review all photographs carefully, as they are an important part of the description.
Marks: The label on the inside reads "MADE IN FRANCE." This came from a local estate sale where the owner had a variety of vintage purses and hats.
