Early 1800's handbag is in amazing condition. It is crocheted with silver steel beads that were crocheted into the purse in a beautiful flowered pattern. It has original green lining and a long tassel made from the same silver beads. Check out all the pictures on this piece. It is in excellent condition as far as the black cotton material but on small place on the purse the steel beads have discolored. The bag without tassel is 7 1/2" and width is 4 3/4" at widest part. The tassel adds about 3" more to length.
