This stunning vintage micro bead purse features thousands of glass beads which create a lovely blue, lavender, pink and peach floral border on an off white background accented with gold tone glass bead clusters. Breath taking craftsmanship is evident in every aspect of this beautiful evening bag. The opening on this purse is so unusual. There is a rhinestone studded clasp on each side that you pull back (not a lift motion.)
The beading is in very good condition, including the beaded handle. The beige satin lining has some slight cosmetics soiling and there is a slight dark spot on the bottom. Both of these things do not detract from the beauty of this stunning purse. The bag measures 9 inches in width by 5 3/4 inches in height. The handle is 12 inches in length. Out of an estate of elegant items, I was told that the purse was purchased in the 1950's. There are no tags that state where it was made but it could very well be from a French maker.
Anyone who purchases this very special piece for their collection, will surely want to dress up just once to be seen with this exquisite hand bag on their arm!
