This is an interesting 1950's petit point evening purse, made by hand, more likely in France, for the well recognized designer, Walborg.

The French needle workers were known for making many of the better Walborg petit point purses and I just have the feeling this one was made in France.

The small silk stitches are wonderfully alive with a full spectrum of dozens of color tones. These are not the micro stitches but they are still small nonetheless. There is not much of a background but it is a deep rich jet black that really pops this comfortable picnic scene. There are 6 adults and 1 child in this scene. The floral border around the scenes is stunning. My photos are great but they still don't depict the full depth of color on this purse. You will be amazed when you see it in person. It's very stunning and elegantly charming. Both sides of this purse depict the same scene which suffers no color loss, stain, wear, tear or any sign of age. This purse looks like it was just made, in gorgeous, well preserved condition. It takes a lot of talent to hand stitch a purse like this to completion.

The gold tone frame has a ribbed design, it is in nice shape and functions structurally as it should. The Art Deco designed clasp is set is a nice touch with marcasite stones, there are four stones on each side, none appear to be missing. The outer perimeter border of this purse is stitched with coordinating florals and everything is brought together with jet black piping. I am showing you lots of photos so you can see how truly deserving this purse is. The detailing is exquisite, this vintage petit point purse has a lot of character, eye appeal and is dramatic. The purse is secure to the frame at all points, as it should be, and opens and closes properly.

The interior is lined with a super quality satin, in a tan/golden brown sort of tone, as shown.  This purse will arrive with accessories, a fine make-up mirror in 1 pocket and the matching satin coin purse in the other pocket, labeled with the Walborg designer tag. The lining is spotless and looks unused. Stuffed with tissue paper, as shown, this purse measures about 6 inches from the top of the clasp to the bottom, 8 inches across the widest part, 6 1/2 across the frame and the chain carry handle drops the purse by 5 inches. If you've been looking for an attractive and clean Walborg designer petit point evening purse with a scenic figural view, please consider this exceptional example. This one is as close to pristine as they come, it's amazing!
