A pretty Regency soft red velvet purse dating to about 1820
It has a white micro bead design to the centre on both sides and loops to the edge.
There is a decorative ormolu frame with working clasp.
The condition is very good with only very occasional single beads missing that can hardly be seen. Beading is otherwise completely stable.
The purse is lined in cream silk. Measurement: just under 4 inches, excluding loops.
