This is a large vintage purse / handbag featuring a handmade needlepoint exterior. I believe that the purse dates to the 1940s. The needlepoint is attached to a perforated ormolu brass frame with ornate clip clasp. It has a chain handle and is lined in a black faille taffeta with two built-in pockets. It measures 17” by 13”, exclusive of its chain handle - the handle has a “drop” of 7 3/4”. It is in very good condition with no wear, tear or staining - this purse looks to have seen little use.
This is a larger than usual example of one of these needlepoint purses - you could pack a lot of things into this purse!
