This spectacular figural tapestry purse with elaborate jeweled frame was one of two purchased from an estate. The owner, the grandmother of the seller, had them both in boxes for virtually their entire existence. The condition of this handbag is evidenced by this. This lovely and vibrantly colored bag with a different scene on either side shows the barest minimal wear with only a tiny pinprick in a fold near one frame joint that I can detect. The only other item worth mentioning is about 5 stitches to the frame on the back that could be reinforced if desired (this is not a tear or damage, just the original stitching to the frame that has come loose). A tribute to time and not a victim of abuse with no staining, no holes or obvious flaws. Excellent vintage condition. All of the jewels are present on the frame (it looks like a piece of jewelry in itself) and the bag is all original including the lining which is of cream silk showing some wear but mostly intact with a shirred pocket and small folded mirror encased in fabric. It also has a time faded calling card nestled in the pocket for the new owner to discover. It measures 7 x 9 inches.
