Here is a scarce child's or doll size beaded bag. This fine bead scenic is unusual subject matter for such a small size. This early reticule dates from about 1850. The body of the bag is unlined and in excellent condition. There are a few small holes with minor bead loss. The original fine knit edging at the top is woven thru with replaced cording. When laid flat the bag is 3 inches tall and 3 inches across the top. The scene is country home with trees and fields. This pretty little piece is a good addition to a purse collection or to display with dolls or vintage children's items.
