Vintage beaded drawstring purse. The main color is a dark blue although it looks almost black in my pictures.
Beaded design repeated on back ( last pic ). Drawstring loop and chain with a tad of discoloration to a few parts of the chain. Interior lining looks to be silk and is complete with no holes. I saw a few stitches added to the lining. There is a beaded accent tab on the top front of the purse and the back is a lighter blue silk so I'm not for sure if this lining is original or just a darker color to begin with.
There is a white bead added as seen in the 5th picture. From what I have read ladies marked the bag with a white bead when making them in a certain area and these were made and sold to department stores. I guess this is how they identified who's bag had sold ? Perhaps they didn't receive payment till it was purchased.
It looks complete with a few loose strings. Bag size 6" by 6" - length including chain measuring 13".
