It was love at first sight with this gorgeous little example. A very, very small micro beaded purse front from the 1820 period has been mounted and framed ready to hang and admire. Although just the front, this was clearly a labor of love that was never finished, yet cherished for nearly two centuries. Worked all by hand on a fine linen ground, the painstaking skill with very fine needles is to be truly admired. Of course purse making was a favorite pastime during the early 19th century.
Framed in a modern antique effect frame with cream mat and behind glass.
