A very beautiful antique purse from a single owner collection. This genuine Victorian purse was very neatly crocheted in many differing crochet techniques and in many shades of brown cotton which incorporates a lovely paisley design to the base. This paisley design is then highlighted with encrusted clear glass beads and cut steel beads. The effect is absolutely charming. The middle and upper sections netted in an almost sprang technique. The very top section netted in a different technique again with stripes of beige cotton highlighted with teeny steel beads. This original Victorian example has a centre split opening to access your coins and one facetted cut steel slider. Complete with original top cut steel bead finial and highly decorative cut steel base fringe. This is a super, all original Victorian example to add to your collection.

Size: Entire incl fringe, length 12 inch (30 cm), at its widest 2.75 inch (7 cm).

Condition: Good and strong, perfectly usable. Slight rusting to cut steel sliders as is so common with Victorian examples
