This is an exquisite example of a reticule or drawstring bag/pocket circa 1810-20. It is all hand embroidered on very fine hand loomed unbleached linen. The inside of the bag is almost the same quality stitching as the outside. I show a picture of the bag turned inside out and I have put a penny on that that pictures The pocket is 8" by 8". In an oval type wreath are the initials "BH". The floral stump work embroidery is finely done with nice height. There are a couple early nicely done repairs about 1/4" " across. There is some age related darkening of the purse. This is an early nice example of an stump work draw string purse.
