RESERVED FOR K // Antique Edwardian Purse / Gold Gilt Frame / Turquoise Enamel / Peach Crochet Wood Beads Fringe 1900s offered by bohemiantrading

RESERVED FOR K // Please do not purchase unless you are K // This incredibly well-preserved antique Edwardian purse has a beautiful gold gilt frame with lovely details. With an applied turquoise enameled flower at its center, flower bud kiss lock, applied scalloped garland edging, and an overall floral motif with sinuous woven handle, it must have been made for a lady of some means. The deep peach crocheted body has an assortment of wood beads in brown tones, including mahogany, rust, walnut, and black. The crocheted body is lighter in color than may appear in my photos--more deep peach or salmon than orange. The bottom has 2” long fringe.

Its interior is an extraordinary salmon color, which looks like silk crepe de Chine. It is hand finished and in excellent nearly unblemished condition. The lining does not go all the way to the bottom of the purse, but extends to within about 2” from the bottom (before the fringe). There is a little loss to the gilding on the handle and a few darks spots here and there on the frame (mostly on the back and at the clasp), as well as the enameled flower. Nothing unexpected or distracting. The crocheted body is also in excellent condition with one lost bead (second row from top), but without any void or looseness in the body. One bottom corner thread is slightly frayed (the finishing knot), and a few threads on the fringe seem a bit stretched, but its appearance overall is fresh and vibrant. It is unmarked, c. 1900’s-1910’s.

This would be considered a summer accessory because of its colors and use of wooden beads. I can just see it accompanying a lady with her parasol at Saint-Tropez or Biarritz, enjoying the therapeutic sea air. I have never seen another antique purse like it, and consider it to be choice.

This item will be carefully wrapped in tissue paper (folded over), but not gift boxed due to its size. It will be sent insured, if in the US, or Registered, if outside the US.

SIZE: 7”W x 9-1/4”L plus 2” fringe; add approx. 6” for the handle
