This old purse is like a soft clutch and it is made with faceted plastic beads. The beads are strung together in opposing directions which gives it a fun mesh appearance. The purse portion is lined but the closing flap is not. Inside is a single large compartment with a small open pocket stitched on the side. There is a brass snap closure at the top edge of the fabric lining. There is a label inside that reads; Made in Italy. I believe this Italian purse is from the 1970’s.
It measures about 8 ½” wide by 5 ½” high. It is in very nice condition with minimal wear and the clasp works properly. There are a few thread fibers but none of the beads appear to be loose or missing and in fact there is one spare bead inside, I suppose for repairs. The inside is generally clean and odor free.
