What a superb little early 19th century purse. It features fish scales and gold metallic thread embroidered on red velvet. The fish scales form the flowers and leaves of the design – the flowers have gold beads at their centers. Pretty scalloped gilt frame; white silk lining; gold bead looped edging. Good condition; there is some disintegration to scales. Measures 4” by 3 1/2”.
