Antique Victorian Petit Point Handbag
Marie Antoinette Dancing Figural Party Scene
8” x 6.5”

Made in Austria

Marcasite & Silver Details

This Authentic, Vintage Austrian Marie Antoinette Petit Point Purse was handmade in Austria during the era of labor-intensive micro petit points coveted by collectors. There is an incredible amount of detail in the artistry, featuring formal French Victorian Dancing Scenes, and the petit point itself is in extremely fine condition. Stunning filigree frame, most likely brass cut to silver, and set with marcasite gems. Original white leather interior with pockets and label are in wonderful condition.

This very special figural purse is being offered at SUCH a low starting price because there is damage in the form of fabric coming away from the top metal frame on one side, and sadly I do not trust my dry cleaners to repair or clean the vintage purse. Hopefully, there will be a buyer who has more experience with restoring these amazing petit point handbags than I do and can easily handle the repair and cleaning.

During the Victorian, Edwardian eras and the early 20th century, hand worked petit point became a specialty in France, Austria, and Hungary. Petit point handbags were worked in superb wools and silks, depicting flowers, landscapes, and scenes from mythology to courtship. Today, these highly esteemed works of art are still hand made in Austria with many elaborate micro petit point designs selling in the thousands of dollars, however, their vintage counterparts can be purchased at a much more reasonable cost to the collector, the trick is finding them in great condition. I feel certain this one can be restored, but it will take the right buyer.
