Petit Point Compact and Purse

This very fine vintage powder compact from the 40s-50s has been worked in tiny (micro) petit point stitches in shades of pink, green, yellow and blue. The design is of a rose surrounded by smaller flowers on a black background. All the petit point is bright and clear and has no damage or missing stitches.

The interior is 'gold' toned and in unused condition. The puff and sifter are also new and original and the mirror is good with no blind spots.
The back shows some light marks.

The small purse has a variation of the compacts rose design - it is lined and lightly padded and closes with a kiss clasp.

Please note that this is a vintage bag and althoughh it is in very good condition, it DOES have some of the minor surface marks you would expect on a used bag. These DO NOT - in any way - spoil or adversely affect the look or use of this bag.
