Beautiful antique micro beaded drawstring purse with floral wreath and fabulous ribbon and bow. There is an amazing array of colors including pinks, purples, greens, and blue in muted tones on a black background with an all over pattern of small golden crosses. The pattern is the same on both sides. The reticule is 8.5 inches long, 11 inches including the tassel, and 6 inches across the top. It comes with a sepia toned real photo post card of the original owner with the purse. The postcard has an Austrian stamp with a 1917 cancellation mark. While it has wear, it is an unusual and quite wonderful companion to the purse and will be forwarded with it!
The purse is overall in excellent condition with some missing beads near the top and holes on the side which we have shown in the photos. The flaws are not as noticeable in person given the black lining and underlying material of the purse. One of the strings on the bottom tassel is loose and missing some beads and could be tied or removed. A few of the rings at the top are missing, two of which are on the drawstring and need re-attaching. These flaws are relatively minor and more or less to be expected given the age and use of the purse, and together with the photo the bag would make a special addition to a collection.
