Fabulous antique micro beaded scenic purse with a courting couple in petit point. Wonderfully decorated with tiny glass beads in a floral design on the back and surrounding the young couple. This delightful beaded drawstring bag is a special find from a local estate. Both sides of this c.1880 bag features a combination of tiny glass beads. Each side is different. The front side has a very detailed young couple in a garden. This is done in petit point, but it looks like it is done in beads. The back is all done in fine beads. It unlined.
EXCELLENT CONDITION. I don't think there is a bead missing. The original crochet header and silk drawstring are secure. The twisted fringe is full and complete. Overall excellent antique condition.
9-1/2" up and down including the fringe x 7" wide.
