This stunning hand embroidered red and black silk purse was hand made in the 1930s to a very unusual design as it cleverly folds and fastens from a completely flat shaped silk piece.

The black silk exterior has the most sumptuously embroidered scrolling pattern of leaves and flowers with a decorative metal spangle and wire-work loop border. The hand embroidered flowers are in tones of dark pink, peach and white and appear to represent roses, carnations and pansies. The metal spangle borders are edged in rows of tiny yellow silk stitches. The back of the purse has a semi-circular faux pocket to match the front with the same amazing floral embroidery. Inside the purse is lined with scarlet red silk and there is one side pocket. The open purse folds up and fastens together with small metal press studs to create a secure enclosed clutch purse. Very unusual and probably hand made by a very talented needlewoman.

Excellent condition with very slight surface dirt from handling and use that is barely noticeable.
All fastenings remain secure and the purse is in great usable condition.

A very decorative textile that would be ideal for display or could equally be used as a stunning and unique vintage clutch purse.

Clutch width 7 inches (180mm)
Clutch height 5.25 inches (135mm)
Open width 16.5 inches (420mm)
Open height 14 inches (357mm)
