Here is a sweet evening bag dating from the 1920's. Inside is a label stating "made in France." The fabric is taupe-colored silk decorated with bead work in an Art Deco style. The beads are made of metallic steel and white opaque glass. There is a white metal frame with two glass "jewels" decorating the clasp. The handle, 13" long, is a gunmetal color. The lining is silk moire a shade lighter than the exterior of the bag. The inside is in fine condition. There is some deterioration of the silk on both sides of the bag; it is not very noticeable because the color of the lining is similar to the exterior silk fabric. The design of the beadwork is so interesting that that is what catches your eye. The purse is 6 1/2" X 5 1/2" X 1 1/2" thick. The beadwork is perfect.
