For sale is lovely antique late 19th to early 20th century beaded reticule handbag that came from Ohio. It is completed in a floral pattern with an 8-point star and swag design on the bottom. At the top there is a row of flowers all the way around. The flowers of the main design are completed in red, pink, yellow, brown, turquoise, and green surrounded by clear beads that appear off-white because of the fabric underneath. The rest of the beading is in shades of brown and black. The drawstring closure is hand crocheted in forest green, and the lining is champagne colored silk, I believe. The bag measures about 7 1/2" long and 5" wide, and is in very nice condition, with no holes, rips, stains on the outside or inside. There is one very tiny area at the bottom in one of the black diamond shapes where there are no beads, but it doesn't look as if there ever were. Please look carefully at the pictures as they are an important part of the description, and be sure to ask any questions. What a sweet addition to your collection of vintage and antique purses!
