Original Authentic Old Antique CIVIL War Era 1800's Crocheted Purse Bag Reticule
Very old antique hand made drawstring purse or reticule. Detailed crocheted lace pattern is the same on both sides. Lacy top ruffle graces the opening. Twisted rope draw string. Lovely tea stained off while or beige color enriched from age and use. Original silk lining appears to be a brown shade – it is very delicate and frail – it has some linear type tears and continues to tear easily. Ready and waiting for your wardrobe or collection – you will love it! Measurements : Aprox 6.25″ across at the widest point x 5.5″ tall to the drawstring vertically – lace ruffle trim is aprox another 1.5. The opening at the tops is about 3.5 across. Measured laid out horizontally and measured end to end (doubled over as they would naturally lay) the drawstring is 24 long. Marks : None that I could find. Condition : Great condition for the age – The outside and drawstring are intact and no damage to note – the lining is very fragile, crisp and has tears and shreds, etc in the silk fabric. Perfect as is for display or a collection. If you intent to use it – I sure would. Recommend removing and/or replacing the frail delicate lining. Or using a secondary pouch or pocket inside to hold and protect your items and the lining. View & enlarge photographs to closely inspect fine details and to determine the amount of patina, and/or wear. Most older pieces by nature normally have some degree of both and, unless severe, aren’t considered damaged. I will do my best to note anything glaring or distracting.
