This is a fine example of an early nineteenth century reticule. It is of a very fine velvet with tiny seed beads in rich colors of green, blue, rose, pink and white. They appear to be all intact. The velvet does show wear in places but no holes and in general would be considered good. It looks to have museum numbers inside. It is 7 1/2" wide and 6 1/2" tall. It is a surprise to find a purse so early with all the beads and so beautiful.
