You are looking at a spectacular Michael Swiss petit point purse with a floral bouquet design, which is on both sides. The original label is included, but it has been detached. In one of the photos of the lining, I have placed the label where it would have been placed. There may have been another label as well. The Label Reads: Michael Swiss, 16, Rue De La Paix, Made in France. It dates to the 1930’s, possibly 40’s.
The petit point beautifully depicts bouquets of colorful flowers on each side. It has a gold gilt engraved frame and working clasp. It's decorated with faceted ruby color glass tiny stones which are all intact; in-between the stones are petit point. The purse is lined with beige satin lining, which is a bit dirty. There are two open pockets; one on each side which measure 3 1/8” deep X 6” wide.
The purse is approx. 8 ¾” across, 7” top/bottom & 1” wide at the sides. The decorative gold link handle has a 5 1/2" drop.
The overall condition is excellent, with the slight imperfections listed above. Please note the photos of the upper corners appear to have flaws; this is not the case. The trim ends approx.. ¼” from the top edge on both the front and back.
The lucky new owner will absolutely love this outstanding vintage hand made in France purse.
