For sale is an exquisite antique black beaded evening handbag/purse that I recently acquired from a sale in Ohio. The purse was made in France, and is marked as such inside. It is an almost teardrop shape, and has beautiful workmanship, including a very intricate gold and silver beadwork design on the frame and clasp. It has a gold snake chain handle, and is lined in black silk. The purse measures about 6" long not including the handle, and 5 1/2" wide at its widest point. The handle measures about 7" when fully extended. This purse is in very nice condition, with no missing beadwork, and no holes or rips in the lining. The gold metal frame and clasp have a nice aged patina, and the clasp works well. Please look carefully at the pictures as they are an important part of the description, and be sure to ask any questions. What a fabulous addition to your collection of antique/vintage beaded handbags!
