Material: Petit Point, Moire Satin
Size: Purse Body + Frame Length ~ 5 & ½ inches, Width ~ 7 inches, Overall
Length inc/chain ~ apx. 11 & 1/4 inches
This hand bag is in exceptionally nice vintage estate condition and appears to be
completely original, including, lining, chain, clasp, jump rings, etc. We see no
problems or issues of any kind with bag exterior. Frame and chain both appear very
good, free of verdigris and damage. We see no loose petit point stitches, no stains,
no wear to edges and both needle work and lining remain firmly attached to fame.
Moire fabric interior is quite clean and nice, free of the commonly found lipstick
stains and no tears or other distress. There are a couple of very tiny,extremely
light specks to two of the inside pockets. In my opinion these are so minor and
insignificant, however I have not tried to clean, so if they cannot be forgiven it
is likely cleaning would resolve.
As mentioned above, the colors in the bag remain very rich, with both front and back
showing the same vibrancy, there is no fading to one side, which is quite commonly
seen in old textile handbags.
Overall an exceptionally nice condition, extremely well made, fine Edwardian Viennese
handmade petit point purse. Note: floral design on both front and back of purse.
