Christine of Detroit is a well known vintage label in this area. Her expertise in finishing needlework done by local ladies is legendary and unsurpassed. This particular example has a petite Point center surrounded by needlepoint roses. Identical front and back. Note the double pearly clasp on the gold filigree frame. The bag is bound in matching needlepoint border, trimmed with a corded edge. Lined in frosty pink silk taffeta with 2 of Christine|s signature tuck pleated open pockets. The bag is perfect except for 3 worn areas in the lining, one at each hinge and the smallest on the bottom where the pink silk has shredded but the underlying linen liner is still sound. Measures 8 1/2 x 6 1/2 x 2".
This item was part of the archives of the Bag Lady Emporium, originally in operation from 1996 through 2022 (Inventory ID 990587). It sold for $75.00.
