It took some thinking to figure out the mounting for this gem of a purse – I’m guessing it’s from the 1910s-ish? As you can see, the beads are the tiniest of tiny and if you tried to sew it down, the thickness of the needle would break the threads holding it together.

Rare Earth Magnets to the rescue! Yes, there are 12 little rare earth magnets there to hold it to the backing board! Six magnets are glued to the backing board and six are inside of the purse. So, if need be, the purse can be removed and used. Although this purse may be too small to hold an iPhone, you could carry two credit cards with you and a key, minus the key ring.
