A very beautiful and unusual antique purse from a single owner collection. This genuine Victorian purse is unusual because of the CLOUD motifs crocheted in to the design. Can you imagine the complexity of the task? Only achievable by a very experienced crocheter. The teeny cut steel beads still sparkle and twinkle. The upper section of the body is netted and beaded in matching cut steel beads, the effect is just stunning. Having central slit opening to access one's coins. Very pretty cut steel beadwork base fringe and one faceted cut steel slider. This is a super, all original Victorian example to add to your collection, it will not disappoint.
