Lately I went to a delightful antique shop. There were these little purses in a corner with elaborate embroidery. I really wanted one but they were to expensive($70). I researched, and found out that the style is called petit point.
Austria made the style well known, and many of the vintage evening bags are from there. Though the actual style of embroidery originated in Rocco France.
My favorite one that I found was this:
|Petit Point Evening Bag|
|Details of Embroidery|
|Petit Point Perfume Bottle|
|not as nice as other ones but still cool|
|a little different from the others|
