This lovely evening bag was crocheted onto its ornate metal, gold-tone frame. The color is tan with emerald green glass beads added in a quartet repeating pattern. The frame is tooled with an art nouveau design. The clasp “buds” are flower heads and the chain attachment rings are also art nouveau in design. The chain has darkened with age. The lining is also tan with a stitched leaf and flower thread design, the bag measures 6 inches across and is 5.25 inches deep. Inside the bag was an extra delight - a small green leather suede coin purse with a pencil nubbin inside. This 3 5/8 x 2.25 inch coin purse was either for “mad money” or to hold the pencil for filling out a dance card. Overall, this purse is in very good condition.
