This little macrame purse is beautifully done with a lot of detail--it is easy not to recognize the age, because most people associate macrame with 60s/70s.... This style of macrame is a knotting technique that sailors used. This piece is a sailors macrame purse. The first thing sailors did was make a "ditty bag" to store their tools and learn all the knots, then to while away the long days of boredom at sea, they made gorgeous macrame items on their off time and sell them. This is an antique purse from an estate. Overall for it's age--late 1800's to early 1900's--this little bag is in very good condition. The inside lining material is of handsewn navy blue velvet in great condition for it's age, the outer shell was done in a tan/natural fine rope in intricate hand knotting. Beautiful antique piece with no stains. Meausres approx 7" x 7" (not counting fringe). Lovely condition and a real show piece.
