Purse from Mobile and Another Silver Tea Set

End of Jan. bulb, Roy, flea, table, glass 051My dealer friend and his wife just got back from picking up something for a friend in Mobile. They antiqued on the way down and he bought me a purse. Not only a petit point purse, but a petit point purse with a totally gold-beaded background. He always likes spending my money. He has a great eye and  always find a good bargain. He is a dealer with a tax number he can get things cheaper. This one was a great find. Complete with all the beads. It’s not a very old bag but a great one. There are thousands of beads sewed around the petit point and the back is solid beads. This one mybe a “hang-her-on-the-wall” purse. It’s really pretty. The day he gave it to me he, also, handed me a silver-plated coffee pot with the sugar and creamer. “You want it. Take it.” Cute, simple, but needs polishing………………..of course. Thanks, Dealer Friend!End of Jan. bulb, Roy, flea, table, glass 052End of Jan. bulb, Roy, flea, table, glass 054End of Jan. bulb, Roy, flea, table, glass 066
