Ivory-colored faux pearls completely cover this classic Grandee Bead clutch purse except for the gold tone closure, which boasts two pearls of its own. There is a tuck-away chain link handle attached to the metal frame of the purse, all in gold tone. The lining is a silky white textured taffeta with a small pocket lined in gold tone piping.
Signed on inside pocket Grandee Bead / Made in U.S.A. with patent number (last line not legible). Measures 11” long x 6” tall with ½” tall clasp. The clasp works as if new. There is a faded discolored spot on the floor of the lining which may account for a small discolored place on the lace mesh between the beads on the outside (that we couldn’t get to show in photos). Otherwise the condition is very good; purse is very attractive; very 1950s.
Antique and vintage porcelain, pottery, glass, collectibles and, of course, knick-knacks too!
