An absolutely incredible needlepoint purse embroidered with two tranquil country landscapes.
The stitches are tiny, the craftsmanship impeccable.
Both designs are intricate landscapes with detailed trees, water and clouds.
One scene has ducks swimming in a pond, the other has a woman walking across a bridge over a river.
The great use of subtle color in shading gives the scenes wonderful depth.
Both scenes are framed with a border of small roses and gold curls on a royal purple background.
The frame is simple, a subtle textured brass with a clasp that mimics the curls in the needlepoint, the purse has a flat chain handle.
The inside is white cloth with a small pocket.
It measures 9.5" by 8", the frame is 7.75" across, the handle is 12".
The purse is in overall excellent condition, no damage or wear-the needlepoint has no problems, the inside cloth shows wear and is shredded around the hinge area.
An extraordinary example of fine pettipoint silk embroidery.
