This colourful purse has been hand embroidered with petit point stitches in a dramatic Art Deco design. The embroidery silks have been worked on a taupe mesh fabric creating a band of pink and peach flowers on a central blue strip with ziggarut edges. There are abstract semi-circular motifs either side with palm fronds above - all on a black embroidered ground.

The silver coloured metal frame is decorated with tiny flowers and scrolling leaves. There is a central kiss clasp fastener and a delicate elongated oval link handle.

The interior is lined with peach coloured fabric edged with pretty peach and pistachio green trimming.

Very unusual and very Art Deco.

Overall the purse is in good condition with no missing stitches or holes in the needlework. The exterior is still brightly coloured and fresh looking except fot the very top edge where the blue stitches meet the frame under the clasp which is a little faded from years of use. The interior is in good order but has a couple of pinhead holes that can be seen on the images. The frame has a very slight misalignment but still opens and closes really well.

height 185mm (7.25 inches)
width 162mm (6.5 inches)
length of handle 316mm (12.5 inches)
