I love this purse. I bought it over the internet from overseas. When it arrived I noticed that while the beading and embroidery were in pristie condition, the frame had some serious rust. I think I improved the purse with a period frame. I reused the lining of the original, even though a little of the surface rust stain remained. I was very lucky. I found an extrodinary seamstress who was able to do a more than perfect exchange. Zoom in to see how she used using the tiniest of beads around the sew holes to make new frame exchange a work of art!
Notice the embroidered designs, they were imported elements from China that were embelished with beading and framing in Europe.
