This is one of my favorites from the collection I'm selling off. It's been on more than a few "little black dress" evenings on my arm, and always to rave reviews from friends. It's a heavy delicious iridescent black beadwork thing with the most lush skirt of fringe that drapes completely over the beadwork body of the bag. These are heavy bags, and not really to be overloaded, but for a formal evening or informal but stylish event, wedding or prom, it's perfect. Over the forearm handle is also beadwork as you can see. Measurements noted on the photos.
Very good to excellent condition, no holes, no rips, no missing beads. Interior in very good condition, a black silk fabric that is ready to put to use, too. My favorite bag. Opulent bead fringe. C. 1900-1920
