The Treasure Hunt

Embroidered silk faille purse

#7525         $95

Embroidered silk faille purse, c.1918

This charming little bag features a petit point floral decoration on one side. It has a gold tone metal frame, clasp, and chain link handle.

With brown silk faille on the exterior, the bag is lined with mocha silk faille. The interior has two pockets and a mirror with case. The name of the maker is stamped on the lining, but I can't make it out. You may do better with a high-powered magnifying glass.

The condition is very good. The silk is slightly worn along the upper edges. This is reflected in the price.

It measures 4 1/2" tall and wide.
