LATE GEORGIAN French black velvet purse with cut steel : $795.00LATE GEORGIAN 18th Century antique French black velvet purse with cut steel brads and beads on the tan suede portion and cut steel beads on the velvet.
This could be either late Georgian or very early Victorian, circa early 1800s.
The purse frame has a basket design with tendrils.
The purse body is 12" including the 2-1/4" fringe by 6-1/4" wide with a 16" handle, and the lining frayed but still there.
The cut steel brads have 14 facets in the older style.
The matching mirror is also included inside the purse.
One 1/4-inch piece of the tan suede is broken but stable and in place, as can be seen in the picture.
A very similar purse can be seen in the Dawes & Collings book, "Georgian Jewellery, 1714-1830", on page 18.
