Vintage Needlepoint Bag

For sale is a beautiful needlepoint bag, circa 1940-1950, which needs some tender loving care. It features a pretty floral design on a dark background with a gorgeous enameled frame with rhinestone clasp.

This lovely old purse would make a great display item as is or would need a repairs/restoration if you want to use it. The condition issues involve missing most of the teeny rhinestones along the frame and a top section of the needlepoint is coming away from the frame and inner lining (needs to be sewn back, it is about a 3 inch section). Also, the inside lining is stained and torn in some areas (see last picture).

I do not believe the frame is sterling although it does look similar to purses of that era with sterling frames. I do not see a stamp of any kind on the inside of the frame.

Similar bags are very costly. I am keeping the price low to reflect the condition and the possible cost of repair.

Please inquire if you have any questions regarding this lovely bag.
