Antique Dieppe Carved Ivory Purse * C1870

Antique Dieppe Carved Ivory Purse * C1870
This lovely little purse was carved by the famous ivory carvers of Dieppe France. The frame is silver plated metal. It's lined in blue kid leather. Every bit of it is original. A little central interior purse has a separate catch. The amazing carving is a variety of lush flowers. I can make out roses, pansies, daisies and forget me nots.
