I simply do not recall the last time I saw one of these fabulously beaded miniature purses in person. Maybe never! I see one tiny spot on this little bag where where the beads are a bit off, but that is it. I do not notice any spots where beads are missing. This little bag appears to be made of silk. Purse itself measures about 1 1/4 inch in length not including that fabulous beaded trim. This makes the entire length a bit over 1 1/2 inch. The length including its original black ribbon strap is about 6 1/2 inches long. I have photographed the knotting of the ribbon which was done, I assume, to shorten the length. I have no idea if it was made this way. This little purse is fabulous and rare and will satisfy even the choosiest of dolls. Please feel free to ask questions or request more photos. Do take a peek at my other early doll items and thank you for the look.
