There was a time I collected vintage needlepoint purses and I recently came across some in storage.
You are looking at a beautiful marigold yellow needlepoint wool purse, with gorgeous multi-color flowers which are the same on both sides.
Both sides along with the bottom feature pink roses. The bottom has four gold metal "feet" to protect it from getting dirty.
There is a gold chain link handle, which has a 6" drop. The gold metal frame has embossed roses on both sides. There is a kiss closure.
The inside is lined in mustard yellow color textured fabric, but I'm not sure what type it is. There are two pockets on one side; one open & one with a zipper, which works perfectly. The other side has one open pocket which has a matching coin purse; the top edges are soiled, but overall it's in good condition.
The dimensions are: 12" long from top of the frame; 11" across the top of the frame; 14 1/2" across at the widest center portion with the sides extended a bit; it is 2 1/4" wide at the sides. The bottom is 2 1/8" wide.
The condition is excellent, with only a few needlepoint stitches which are raised up a bit; I believe this is the way it was made. Also, the lining has some soiling along the top edges, on both sides (see pic #4). This is rather minor. There is a 1 1/2" long scuff on the bottom piping (see pic). In person this is not even noticeable.
This vintage purse is gorgeous in style, color & workmanship; you will absolutely love it.
