This beautiful ivory lame' hand crocheted reticule with crocheted ball trim, contains a bride's delicate handkerchief and is in wonderful condition for its age. (circa late 1800s to early 1900s) This reticule measures approx 5" X 10". The handkerchief (10"X10") is very delicate and quite worn, there are three holes worn through. Despite its condition, it seems such a shame to separate the two.
This would make a lovely gift for the Victorian Bride's "Something Old" - A bit of the past, to preserve and pass on to the future.
