Antique Love Token Wove Paper Purse, With Hearts, Serrated Edge, Handle It Opens!
  • I absolutely love this little wove love token purse or basket!  I've never seen another like it.  Tiny and wove with green and white paper, complete with serrated edge, handle and hearts.  This little beauty is framed in a period gilt frame with glass to the front and back so that you can see both sides of this little wonder.  Look at the 3rd image to see that it really does open!  Framed size is 5 5/8" x 5 1/4".  Circa 1850.
