Lovely vintage bag, of fine crochet with beads, a lovely beaded bag in the Art Deco style, with vibrant colors of royal blue, emerald and grass green, cranberry and red, gold, and black; a truly beautiful design and color selection. On the lower end a self fringe of black and blue beads. At the top is a black crochet drawstring closure with scalloped edges, and side inserts. We think this bag was originally on a metal frame; and as many of those broke over the years, often we see the bags with no frames or closures at all. We think a prior owner many years ago removed the beaded part and hand crocheted the top and side inserts, and what a fabulous job they did. We will admit the crochet could be original, but we think not, and what a treasure to find such a beautiful bag. The bag is 10" long including the fringe and 7 & 1/4" across. Hard to tell about missing beads, but if there are any it is insignificant, no holes, just lovely.
