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 brown bands at the top and bottom. The flowers are completed in red, pink, gold pale yellow, light blue royal blue, white, and 2 shades of green surrounded by clear beads that appear off-white because of the fabric underneath. The drawstring closure is hand crocheted in brown, and there is no lining, and it doesn't appear there ever was. The bag measures about 6 1/2" long and 5 1/2" wide, and is in very nice condition, with no holes, rips, stains on the outside or inside. I'm not certain if the drawstring is original or not, but it works well with the purse. 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.
