A stunning French Louis XVI Red Moroccan Leather and Silver Mounted Hussif/Purse.
This wonderful hussif/purse opens to reveal six stitched long compartments (possibly for grooming tools), it then reveals a pouch with a subtle green silk lining. A further pouch/purse reveals a mirror with two different sized felt panels covering it (possibly for needles or pins) and a notebook and a holder for a small pencil. It also has small green silk holders for tools/equipment (grooming or sewing). The clasp is decorated with drapes and has an enamel patera. It is unmarked.
