Velvet Reticule

Velvet Reticule
This reticule dates from the 1850's. It is made out of silk velvet and has steel seed beads sewn on in paisley designs. Also features a little tassel made out of wire and the same seed beads. Entirely hand sewn and lined in white kidskin with a drawstring handle. The bag itself measures 6" long, about 15" long from the tip of the handle to the bottom of the tassel.
