When I acquired this purse, I was thrilled! It was nearly flawless as far as its condition. The fabric has no tears, strings hanging off, or broken chains. The interior is in fine shape. It is a mauve-shirred moire fabric and inside there is a pocket with a matching fabric-backed mirror.
The repousse' frame is an ornate Egyptian Revival which has Egyptian Pharaoh's on top of the frame, their heads raised holding the purse chains from the top of their heads. The sides of the repousse frame have a flower border, with pharaoh's heads inserted in several places on the front side only.
The gorgeous petit point purse is olive green with beautiful flowers in a cherry red with pink accents looking as if they are bursting with joy. The leaves are two shades of green in the same value family as the Olive green with a cream accent color.
The purse measures 7” wide x 7" high. The chain is 30"long.
It is in remarkable shape for its age. It's a stunning purse that anyone looking for a glorious addition to their collection, this is the one!
