A charming Chinese silk 3-compartment purse with decoration of figures
A charming Chinese silk purse with three compartments (a central compartment and two further compartments under flaps on the front and back). The pink silk of the purse has been embroidered on both sides with figures in a garden setting, and with a black and blue braid edging. The purse dates from the early Twentieth Century and is 12 cm / 4.7" wide.
The purse is in overall good condition with fading to the pink silk background and discolouration under the two flaps. Please examine our photographs.
