This exceptional purse is made up of steel cut gold-toned and silver-toned steel cut beads. The large gold bands run diagonally with silver stripes in between. The clasp is round with gold-toned beads and white prong set rhinestones. The purse is on a gold-toned embossed frame with a delicate floral vine design. There is a bar extending beyond the frame at the top that has braided gold-toned beads and a row of rhinestones.
The purse has a fine chain handle and a cream colored satin lining. The inside is marked "Made in France I. Magnin & Co." This vintage purse measures approximately 8½" x 5¾. It is in excellent vintage condition and the lining appears to never have had anything in it. A truly exceptional piece from the bead work to the wiring on the frame.
