This micro petit point purse has a palette that is different from most purses of this genre. It is a floral. However most petit point bags have flowers on a black background and are densely sewn together. They usually are roses and chrysanthemums and other flowers that had symbolic meanings of the time. This bag. also being a floral, has more stylized flowers and the entire scene appears to be more contemporary. Perhaps it was created later in the early 20th century when flapper accents were beginning to influence fashion. The bag is curvaceous and rounded. It is small. The stitchery is tiny. The scene is a floral with a light and medium beige background. There are a lot of flowers that are spaced apart. The flowers represent many varieties. The central "figure" is a tall floral plant in a decorative flower part. There are two "columns" on the sides that have lettering which resembles Asian letters? Perhaps this bag has an Asian vibe??? The colors represent the the colors of the rainbow and their many hues. They are bright, crisp and distinct. The scene is the same on both sides. The frame is thin and rounded and it is stamped "STERLING". The frame has engravings and it is subtle and unassuming. The bag closes with a kiss clap that has a blue stone inserted in each side. There is a silver tone carry chain with large links and a drop of 8" . The inside is lined with a taupe grosgrain fabric. There are two open slip pockets. There isn't any marker's mark or country of origin but I think it is Austrian. The inside is very, very clean. The purse measures 7"w x 7"h x 1"d. The purse is in great condition. There might be a minuscule "kink" on the frame but you can't see it and can only feel it. It is mentioned for accuracy. This is a very lovely purse that is a little different from most. It is attractive and has a contemporary feel to it. Charming and ,in its own subtle way, makes quite a statement. Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
