Vintage 1930 European petit point purse 

Today, I am delighted to offer this impressive hand embroidered evening purse executed in the micro petit point stitch. Although unmarked, this is a European made purse, likely from France or Italy, as the construction would suggest. I would place the age at approx. the 1930's era. This purse is in splendid, gorgeous condition, professionally cleaned and suffering no defects that would take anything away from this purse.

This purse is a masterfully embroidered creation, in which it took the embroiderer much talent and months to bring this masterpiece to completion. This handbag comes with a beautiful terrace scene with lots of nature and some architectural features as well. The colors range the full spectrum, there is no fading on this purse. In fact, in person, I believe you will agree, it looks even nicer. Unfortunately, some of my pics came out a little grainy but they still give a good depiction of what to expect. This purse has been thoroughly cleaned and even though there are a couple of tiny discolors remaining, the entire purse is stunning. This purse is in fabulous shape and suffer no issues, no stitch loss, no damages.

This purse is sewn onto a gold tone frame and it is well attached at all points. The pierced decorative clasp is a pull up and back to open style, it is pierced and embellished with little pearly accents, all original. The frame is also set with additional petit point panels across the frame both front and back, all together, it makes for a grand presentation. The frame function well, opens and closes properly. This is a medium sized purse with the side/bottom gusset being 7/8 of an inch. This is a very pretty purse in wonderful condition.

The interior is lined with a soft shiny silky fabric and the color is showing well in my photo. There are 2 pockets and I didn't notice until this listing that it needs a couple of stitches to secure better to the frame, I will handle that before shipping. Not to worry, this purse is outstanding and you will be thrilled with it. I restore each purse as if I were going to own it. Stuffed with tissue, this purse measures 6 inches from top to bottom, 8 inches across the bottom and the carry chain handle drops the purse by 6 1/2 inches. Both sides of the purse have the same beautiful scene on an ivory background color. Thank you for spending time with this purse and please consider adding it to your favorite petit point handbags or perhaps you would like to make this your first acquisition...... good choice.
