 Langlois and Jargeais French bleack beaded Limoges porcelain purse     French intricately beaded evening purse enameled frame for Saks Fifth Avenue
Hi Carol, I received the purses.... and they are wonderful! The black beaded purse with the porcelain plaques is a beauty. I love the red beading on the very top of the frame. The porcelain plaques amidst the lovely gold beading are so well done. This purse speaks of elegance and refinement. The beaded pastel evening purse is incredible. The pastel colored beads are sewn in such a way that amazing patterns and flowers are created. The frame of the purse provides "jewelry" for this amazing work of art. What wonderful colors! Oh, yes, I don't want to forget to mention how adorable the handle of the purse is. The small flowers provide such a lovely finishing touch. And of course, the repairs you made on the two purses I sent  to you are just right! The yellow beading on top of the frame of the white purse looks even better than I had imagined. The charcoal gray purse looks great .  Many thanks! The packaging of all the purses, as always, was done with such care. Carol, you have such a talent for picking out such beautiful purses. Where do you find them all........... Best regards,

Hi Carol, I'm so sorry I forgot to email you when the bowls arrived. They are beautiful and arrived undamaged. Please keep me in mind for anything new that comes in, without hanging holes.

Maybe this gift will be a heirloom of her own.....thank  you again for your tender loving care.  Hope your move is going well, it can be very frustrating, but good.  Have a wonderful day....and thank you again.

Micro petit point sheppard scenic purse celluloid overlaid frame ca. 1900

Vintage 1920 - 1930 French black beaded and embroidered evening purse with enameled frame

Hi Carol, I picked up your package today amid much excitement. Although I am still to examine the purses in detail, I can tell you that I am absolutely thrilled with them. It's funny how, contrary to the norm, needlework never seems to be done justice in photos (and yours are some of the best I've seen). Both purses in the flesh are even finer than I'd anticipated, particularly the beaded, enameled, tambour embroidered little treasure. That purse is truly something special, and the Petit is definitely one of the loveliest I've seen. So to say that I'm extremely happy is a vast understatement! I'd also like to thank you for the very generous lay-by conditions, which most definitely made it much more viable for me to be the next starry-eyed owner of these purses. Also for your impeccable professionalism and friendly service.  Your website will continue to remain a favorite and I look forward to many more years of doing business with you. Thank you again Carol.
