Stunning Antique French Petit Point Bag, with exquisite details, including a very fine hand embroidered front, embroidered with gold bullion and the tiniest beadwork, and further embellished with gold lamé lace. Beautiful! The embroidery work is of the finest luxury quality, with miniature stitches. The purse is made with gold lamé fabric, lined in the original pink apricot silk with one pocket.
The gilded frame has two blue stones set in the clasp, the chain is original. A decorative and rare to find addition to your collection of antique bags, purses and reticules. There is some darkening to the fabric of the back after 100 years, but this bag is very usable, too.
