Cut Steel and Mixed Metals Beaded Purse

This wonderful beaded purse has subtle patterning created by cut steel and brass beads with different textures and finishes. Swirls of brass foliage are outlined by darker steel beads and are on a background of silver-plated brass beads.

The beadwork is offset by a chased brass frame highlighted with rhinestones.

Age: 1950's

Condition: There is some rusting of the cut steel beads primarily on one side of the purse. This is visible through a loupe but to the naked eye appears as darkened beads. There is one small area of bead loss on the front. The handle is in excellent condition. There are a few minor stains on the lining.
