This old handbag is covered in creamy colored sequins with white seed bead leaves that have an elongated faux pearl bead in the center of each leaf. It has a gold tone frame with a bi-pass clasp and a gold tone serpentine chain like handle. The inside has a cream, satin like lining with a half compartment on one side. It has a sewn in label that reads; Created by Mr. John – Hade Made in Hong Kong. This would be a lovely bag for a bride to carry or a fun accessory for a prom goer. I believe it is from the late 1950’s or 1960’s.
It measures about 10 ½” wide by 7” to the top of the clasp or 11 ¼” in length including the chain. It is in nice condition but not without wear. There are a few loose beads and sequins and there might even be a few missing but I can’t make them out specifically and overall it is a very striking bag. The inside is stained which I have shown in the close-up but it does not show to the outside. The clasp work snuggly.
