Vintage 1930's Floral Petit Point Purse.
Ornate brass frame with snap closure and chain. Adorned with marcasite along the front edge and topped with a smooth red carnelian cabochon. Please double click on the pictures for a close up view, you will notice that a some of the marcasite stones are missing but I don't feel that it takes away from the purse, in any way. .
There are only remnants of the original peach silk damask lining, around the edge of the interior frame. The inside of the purse is the heavy backing of the needlepoint piece and completely functional "as is". I have priced this below market value for the reasons stated above.
The purse measures 6" across the bottom, 4" across the top and 5" high.
I'm sure that the brass trim can be polished to a shine and the needlepoint itself, needs a little cleaning but as this is not my forte, I did not want to damage the fabric and decided to leave this up to it's new owner.
As always, thank you so much for stopping by and please feel free to contact me with any questions.
