This elegant and restrained tobacco purse is decorated with appliqué, embroidery and braid in intricate designs. The top features two silver moth motifs which attach to a cord for hanging at the waist and slides on a ring to open the purse. It is lined with mid-blue fabric. The condition is very good for age with small loose threads on the outer braid. This would be a lovely item to add to an interesting collection of unusual Chinese embroideries. Length of purse 8.5 ins (21.5cm). Weight 38 grams.
