Description

This is a truly fantastic and rare petit point or micro stitch needlepoint purse with a silver frame and chain. The cream and black silhouette imagery is very unusual and in fact, in all of our years collecting, we have never seen such an elegant needlepoint purse.

This would be a perfect addition to a handbag or petit point collection or the most charming Valentines Day gift.

The body of the bag is beautifully, masterfully stitched in cream and black silky thread. The scene depicts a romantic moment from most likely the 18th century. The initials "A.F" appear in the bottom left corner. The reverse of the bag is very fine black silk.

The frame of the bag is silver with silver metal thread decoratively joining the bag and frame. The frame features a beautiful relief of blooming roses. The central plaque is engraved with the initials "A.F." and a date of 1936.

The interior of the purse is fully lined with shiny cream colored silk satin and features a small tufted interior pocket. The interior is very, very nice.
