CHARMING EARLY CREAM SILK SATIN RETICULE WITH BEAUTIFUL DETAILS. ENGLISH OR FRENCH ca.1800

This lovely reticule is in cream silk and is beautifully worked in ribbon work and gold thread hand embroidery. It is English or French and dates to about 1800.

The back is plain and there is a drawstring at the opening. It is lined in fine silk.

The details of the finely worked embroidery and ribbon work are superb. The condition very good, although the drawstring needs attention and there is a very tiny pale mark to the front top.
