Camano Island Vintage is pleased to offer this gorgeous antique Austrian petit point needlepoint purse set. This set dates from the 1930s to 1940s and features a purse and wallet in petit point needlepoint, plus a small satin envelope purse inside the purse and a sterling and tortoise shell comb and a mirror inside the wallet. The petit point needlepoint on the purse and wallet is truly exquisite- it is cream and black with flowers, leaves and vines in muted tones of rose, green, golds and blues. Both purse and wallet are stamped MADE IN AUSTRIA.

The purse has an antiqued stamped brass frame with an inset line of onyx, a rectangular piece of onyx as an accent and a regal crown type clasp at the top. The purse handle is a brass link chain. Inside of the purse is lined with cream silk and it has a tiny silk envelope inside that would fit a key or a pair of earrings. The purse measures about 7 ½ inches long by about 5 inches tall and the chain is about 12 inches long.

The wallet features a snap clasp at the top for the coin section and a snap side which has 2 little pockets- one of which holds a square mirror and the other which holds a tortoiseshell looking comb with a beautiful sterling edge in an art deco design. The wallet measures about 3 ¾ inches by 2 ¾ inches when closed and 5 ¾ inches by 3 ¾ inches when opened. The mirror measures 2 ¾ inches by 2 inches, and the comb measures about 3 ½ inches by 1 ½ inches.

This beautiful set is in good vintage condition. The purse may be missing a couple of marcasites or rhinestones on either side of the rectangular onyx accent near the clasp, there are 2 indentations there which would indicate that. There is a slight amount of metal wear on the antiqued brass but there are no stains on the petit point decoration. Inside the purse has some discoloration but no rips or tears. The clasp functions properly.

The wallet has no stains or damage on the petit point outside. Inside the wallet has some stains and discoloration, especially in the coin section. The mirror has silvering loss but the comb is in beautiful condition.

Please keep in mind that vintage items have been worn and loved and all are at least 20 years old, most even older. Due to age, there may be certain areas of wear or other imperfections that are inherent to vintage items. I will always mention significant damage or wear but please do not expect things to look like “new” items.
