Antique French Needlepoint Petit point Purse

with Beaded Close, Enameled and Jeweled Frame

Item Number C17605

Exceptional antique French needlepoint / petit point purse is perfectly finished with a gold plated onyx close with faux pearls and marquisate chips.  Four of the chips and one faux pearl are missing but their absence does not detract from the piece.  The silk moiré lining is aged, see below, but not fractured and in otherwise good condition.  This piece was originally sold in France and was purchased there at an outdoor market last year so it does not bear the "Made in France" label that exported pieces typically have in an inner pocket.  The petit point embroidery is spectacular in taupe, cream, rosy pinks, blues and greens.  This is such a contemporary color scheme and unusual for the day...a fine collector piece!  Offered as found in excellent condition for it's age.  c.1890's - 1910  6" X 8"  Chain -- 7.5" drop
