This purse is in fragile condition as far as the burnt orange wool material which covers the purse. The beading and the framework of the purse are in very good condition. In one of the pictures, I show this purse worn on the shoulder of an 18" doll. This is for scale only and the dress and the doll are available for sale separately. This purse measures 2.5' across the top and 3.23" across the bottom. It measures 1.25" wide across the side. The body of the purse appears to be made of a molded paper material similar to cardboard. The orange wool covers the purse and then the beading is sewn on The beading is very ornate and covers the front and back of the purse. There are beaded loops along the bottom and there is a beaded handle. Even though the fabric is in sad shape, it's still a wonderful antique accessory.
