Austrian Exceptionally Fine “Petit Point” Purse

A delightful vintage purse from the renowned Maria Stransky Studio of Vienna.  She is aptly known as the “Queen of Petit Point,” a very fine and detailed needlepoint. All embroideries from her Studio are traditionally hand-worked in minute detail and incredible arrays of color. This wonderful example dates to about 1940, not long after her Studio opened in 1932. Having lovely figural scenes on each side, a silver-plated frame inset with marcasites at the clasp, and lined with calfskin. Further, this piece was likely worked in a minimum of 1000 stitches per square inch. Mesmerizing detail, needlepoint perfection.

8 1/2″H x 10″W

Circa 1940
