Vintage Kirness Sisters Jerusalem heavily embroidered purse - AS IS
Hand embroidered in decorative couch work, a small zippered purse, labelled Kirness Sisters, Jerusalem. Instantly recognisable, the detailed couched thread decoration surrounds the purse.
While all intact, it has faded over the years, and the purse has been very well used. The rich blue silk lining shows evidence of lipstick from years gone by..plus a little on the outside for good measure! I’ve not attempted to clean. The corners are rubbed, the zipper placket a little open at one end but still works fine. I’m just selling as is because I need to stop hoarding things in boxes - it’s still a lovely thing with an interesting and desirable label to have add in a collection!
6” high and 8.5” across
As above. Structurally sound but well worn externally. Selling as found.
p.s. I wasn’t sure if the zipper was original but there is the identical purse on Etsy in a different colour way, also with zipper.
