This is a knitted beaded purse made with amber colored beads in a swag design. It has a goldtone frame and a chain handle. It measures 7.25" X 8.50". The lining is no longer intact which is quite common with purses of this age. Some of the knitted part has pulled away from the one hinge. On the one side of the purse is a pulled thread. There are some other pulls throughout the knitted part. One of the looped fringe pieces is pulled so it is a little longer than the others. Among the loops are two rogue green beads which is very interesting to me. Maybe it is the signature of the maker. On one side of the purse is a dropped stitch at the frame. Not bad for a purse that is 100 years old!
