A lovely shield-shaped ivory silk reticule, circa 1830. The purse features apple green piping, applied and embroidered strawberries and rosehips to one side, and a mixed floral spray on the reverse. Embroidery is wonderful. Lined in fine white muslin. Some foxing to silk and a split to bottom edge on spray side; lacking a drawstring. Measures 10” by 9”.
