Early nineteenth century reticule theorem purse in good condition. It has normal expected wear but no holes or weak spots, except at the opening of the purse where there is a wooden stay across the opening as a stiffener and it has broken through the fabric at each end. The colors are strong and the blue is vibrant. It is 8 1/2" at it's widest point and is 8" tall. The theorem design is as strong on the front as it is on the back. The floss edging is frayed a little around the edge of the purse. A very nice example of an 1820-30 purse.
