A very pretty cream silk reticule or work bag, English 1820s.
The bag has ribbonwork embroidery to the front and back with metallic additional decoration.
It has a drawstring in silk, threaded through bone or ivory rings.
It is lined in duck egg green silk throughout.
This pretty item is in remarkable condition, and was probably hardly used.
Measurements: 11" x 8"
