If anyone out there can shed any light on this purse please let me know. It was purchased it from another Etsy seller a few months ago. If I recall correctly, I believe it was simply listed as a vintage purse or bag. I photographed it on top of an apron that I picked up a yard sale recently on the way to staffing the shop at Heritage House.
Although the apron had a tiny bit of damage, I was quite taken with the roughness of it and it's obvious hand made construction. I don't mind the few signs of age.
The purse is constructed of nice think velvety material. The design of the flowers is reminding me strongly of a time before turn or century but the velvet itself is shouting much later. Am I correct and the purse was constructed, oh say in the late teens from a scrap bag of older remnants?
Or am I just crazy and have no idea what I'm talking about? These are the things that a I ponder.
It's beautifully monogrammed on both sides, and is amazingly sturdy overall.
Inside the lining is still completely intact with tiny stitches here and there.
My beloved Little One.
He watches everything I do with utter fascination.
