A BEAUTIFUL SILK AND CHENILLE PETIT POINT HAND EMBROIDERED RETICULE. ENGLISH ca.1830

This lovely reticule is in cream silk with tassels and border trim in chenille.

It has the finest petit point floral decoration, beautifully hand worked in silk. Both sides are embroidered, one with flowers and a white dove. The other side with an arrangements of flowers.

It is silk lined, has little brass rings and as cord handle.

On the whole this is in very good condition. The chenille border loops are in order, as are the tassels. The colours are bright and still fresh.

The very top of the cream silk is slightly slit, but this does not show at all. The cord handles have one knot which needs attention. Otherwise a superb reticule.

Measurements: overall 6 1/2" X7 1/2"
