This is an early-war ladies’ patriotic purse. The purse has a snap lock to secure its contents. The purse measures 6 ½” x 7,” and is made of red velvet. Embroidered into the material is the word “Andenken,” a Prussian Eagle above furled flags, the years “1914” and “1915,” then “Belgien.” It features a double gold cord at its top by which the lady could suspend it from her wrist. Its base sports a decorative red tassel. The purse is finely made and provides another example of the German people’s patriotic spirit.
