sweet early antique flax drawstring purse or pouch - prettily glass beaded
A very sweet little drawstring purse or pouch, which has been constructed from what looks to me like flax thread.
It's lined in a similar material, and prettily decorated in glass seed beads.
It would look lovely in a frame or as part of a decorative collection on a wall to admire!
Approx 4.5” x 4”
Despite its advanced age it is surprisingly sturdy. There are a couple of small breaks in the construction, as seen, but these I think are where it has caught, as opposed to the material degrading. The lining is very good to excellent.
