Stunning Antique Chinese Embroidered Silk Purse Handbag Gilt Filigree Coral Jade:
STUNNING ANTIQUE CHINESE EMBROIDERED SILK PURSE HANDBAG GILT FILIGREE CORAL JADE
I am listing a collection of Chinese antiques that have all come from the same house clearance. I do not normally sell Eastern / Oriental items so my knowledge is pretty limited. I will describe as well as I can but please read everything and study my photos all of which can be enlarged by clicking the image. I expect buyers to ask all questions prior to offerding. Thankyou.
On offer here is a beautiful late 19th / early 20th century Chinese embroidered purse / handbag. It is superbly embroidered in silks with flowers, a pumpkin and butterflies / moths in beautiful rich bright colours. It has a gilt filigree frame work inset with small jade and coral stones. To the interior it is lined in peach silk and it has a small circular mirror. It has had a chain handle which is no longer present but could easily be replaced. It is a beautiful piece of workmanship. I can not over enthuse, you need to see it to truly appreciate it. It measures 7.5 inches at its widest by 5.2 inches high. It is in very good condition apart from the missing chain handles and some light wear to the gilding
