A small antique vintage handbag that is fine cotton crochet with pale pink and green silk ribbon draw strings.
The top edges of this lovely purse is open work shell designed lace. The silk ribbons feed through the area right below the fancy lace.
The colors are pale mint green, olive green, pink and yellow.
The bottom of the antique purse is round and it has a piece of shaping in the bottom.
The fine real silk lining is still inside but it is shattering. It is mint green.
A few age marks and overall aging along the bottom edge and at the top.
Structurally this bag is in very good condition.
5" round on the bottom and 7" high without the long ribbons.
It is still usable with care for Somewhere In Time or Downton Abbey events and other Victorian teas and parties.
This would also make a charming antique decorating piece.
From around the Titanic era when home crafts were a past time.
