Lovely peaceful scene of a woman with her heard of sheep appears on both sides of this purse.
The sides are the same and both sides are pictured.
It's an unusual bag because purses from this era almost always depict scenes of wealthy classes doing what the rich did in those days, while this purse shows an average woman tending to her flock.
This purse was created from metal beads and some of the beads are steel and others are a different type of metal.
Condition of the bag is excellent but note that there is some damage to the fringe and to the drawstring as well.
For those so inclined, it would be possible to use some of the beads from the drawstring to repair the fringe for a perfect match, but it displays well just as it is.
Lining is undamaged and appears to be original to the purse.
Measures about 6.25 by 8.5 inches (16 by 22 cm.) at the widest point across and from the top of the bag to the bottom the longest strand of fringe.
