Gorgeous Dutch Victorian Era Black Velvet Handbag w/Unusual Ornate Silver Frame Silk Tassel Interior


Needle Point/Tapestry & Crocheted Purses

Stunning Victorian Era black silk velvet handbag with silver metallic decoration. I mention Dutch because of the incredibly ornate silver frame with a center design of a Dutch man & woman kissing with a windmill in the background and more windmill designs on frame corners as well as a floral design. Top has twist clasp closure and single chain link handle. Hanging from flat bottom of bag is a black silk tassel wrapped with brown thread. The interior of bag is so interesting in blue silk faille with lace trim, open side pocket, an attached mirror and knotted around loop of mirror is a white string with tiny lead pencil. The interior lining is free of tears and only slightly faded from age. This gorgeous purse is in EX condition, the silver frame will need to be cleaned.
