This is an elegant and vintage petite point embroidered evening hand bag. The petite point covers both sides and goes down the narrow ends and the bottom. We acquired it in pristine condition from the estate of a 94 year old lady who kept it in a box in one of her many closets. The work is very fine and the bright colors stand out especially against the black background. The interior is simple with only one small compartment. The frame is gilded brass and it is impressed "China" on the interior. We date it from the early part of the 20th Century. The snap works perfectly and it has a brass chain for carrying. The chain shows some oxidation.
Condition overall is excellent
