Patterns

You might like to see the reticules in The American Girl's Book (1857), even though it's a bit early. (Have you checked the websites for the MFA and the Met? They both have impressive purse collections, but I can't remember many specifically from this part of the 19th century. Here's <a href="http://www.metmuseum.org/Works_of_Art/collection_database/objectview.aspx?OID=80050051>Met C.I.42.29.2</a>, for example.)

Re: Patterns

I did look at the Met but not the MFA - thanks!
