Simple Regency Embroidered Reticule

From the seller:

An early 1800-1820 embroidered cotton reticule/purse. The center front is embroidered with flowers, buds and two large leaves. The centers of the leaves have inserts of net lace. The center back is also embroidered with buds and one large leaf that also has inserts of net lace. The boarder is embroidered with small leaves. The reticule has a drawstring closure. It is in very good and sturdy condition. It has not been cleaned so there is some minor age spotting. There are a few pencil tip size holes and three that are slightly larger. A wonderful addition to an early textile collection. Length 9 inches Width 9 ½ inches

From Me:

Nice, simple, but lovely. ...And I believe the seller meant border. ;-)
