VC514GC: Genuine Ivory Panel Purse
What an amazing antique purse! Fine leather foundation, with a leather handle. The scene in the front is a thin panel of ivory, carved and etched with a lovely garden scene with a romantic couple, trees, etc. Very fine workmanship! The dark cocoa colored velvet set behind the scene is outstanding and very striking. The purse opens to reveal the taupe colored silk lining--most of it is intact, but it is melting in some areas and missing in others--quite fragile condition, as is typical of the very old silk fabrics. The purse measures 8" X 4.5". Very lovely condition. Please click here to view additional magnified photos and click on your BACK button in your browser to return to this page.
