Wow 1930s Vintage Austrian Miniature Petit Point Bag Purse C18th Pastoral Scenes For Sale

Wow 1930s Vintage Austrian Miniature Petit Point Bag Purse C18th Pastoral Scenes

A truly extraordinary example of the finest petit point stitchwork I think I have ever seen
I had to get out my magnifying lens to confirm that this was not a reproduction printed tapestry example,and sure enough, visible through the lens are the finest individual skeins of worked wool that would be required to create these detailed and magnificent scenes
On one side a woman in C18th costume is greeted at the mansion door by her 'Prince Charming' whilst other ladies and gentlemen look on. We see her Sedan chair parked at the foot of the stairs, the flag flying at the door and the trees in the landscape
On the other side of the bag is another group of people in C18th outfits standing in the foreground with a magnificent turreted building in the background. Blossom trees abound and a young boy in pink tail coat strides out with a large grey dog leaping at his side.
These vignettes are completed with baroque swirls and curls and a border of multicoloured full blown roses against black which is repeated around the sides and bottom of the bag
The variety of colours needed to depict such detail is extraordinary and the fact that all is undamaged and complete and still so vibrant is a real treat
Inside the bag is lined with black silk and the gold tone frame is stamped AUSTRIA METALL. The handle is a soft goldtone snake chain.
I can see that the indented wavy line around the outside of the frame was originally studded with marcasites but only 3 remain
There is also wear to the black and cream enamel on the front of the frame and inside the goldtone chain attaching a change purse inside has snapped
The bag measures W7.5" x 6" (19 x 15cm) with side and base strip measuring 5/8th" (1.5cm) wide
When hanging, handle measures 5" long (12.7cm)
But for me, the glorious thing about this bag is the petit point handwork
A real work of art
