Early 19th century reticule, in silk, metal and glass. French. Length 10 and 1/4 inches. Appears to be silk ribbonwork, with rosy glass beads, and silver purl flowers and backgrounding to the wreath motif. This is the reticule I'd plan to make, but in lilac. Note also that the silk tassels are very fine and may feature beaded ends: hard to tell.
