This a wonderful micro or fine glass beaded 'stylized Floral Bag' that is knitted with a crocheted header and a cord drawstring closure from the early to mid 1800's.

There is a bead missing here and there but very minimal bead loss for a purse this age.  It has what appears to be 1 or 2 repaired spots.  There is some slight separation at the top and a small defect on a bottom outer edge.  The glass beads are in several different shades of blue, white, and faceted jet black.

It is fully lined with a black fabric, perhaps satin, and in great shape with no holes, rips, tears, or shredding.  The black beads on the fringe are larger than the beads in the bag, they appear to be haphazardly attached, so I don't believe they are original to the bag.  The current fringe should be removed and new fringe in the proper bead size could easily be added in the proper style.  Purse measures about  6 1/4 x 8 1/4 inches.
