Fantastic double-sided ivory silk embroidered purse, circa 1730-1750. The front features a gorgeous blossom with beautifully shaded petals and a black center unusually constructed of black metal bands. The reverse features two smaller flowers, one with a metallic thread center. Pink ruched edging; pink ribbon drawstring; pink silk lining. Very good condition for such a delicate piece; ivory silk on the front appears to have some oil stains throughout; small section of edging is loose. Measures 5 by 6”.
