Amazing vintage black beaded box purse. Goldtone frame with braided handle. Measures 5" tall (not including handle) x 8" wide x 4" wide at base.
In the 1940s women would buy kits to make beaded panels and handles. They would then send the pieces off and they would be made into these wonderful box purses. The black, coal seed beads really shimmer. The brass handle "buckles" give this a very bold look.
The interior features a gold trimmed pocket for a lipstick, and compact. There are a zippered middle compartment and two side compartments all satin lined.
This vintage box purse is in very good condition with only some light scuffing of the frame and latch.
A great piece for prom, that little black dress or just a fun night on the town.
