DESCRIPTION: Beaded handbags have been fashionable for hundreds of years and should be carried during the day and into the evening. This handbag is one that was carefully beaded and designed with a dramatic flair toward fashion and style. From the early 1800s to the 1920s, , beaded handbags were imported from France, Germany and Czechoslovakia. Later, the best examples came from France, and where we believe this masterpiece originated.

On a stunning background of round iridescent midnight blue beads, the design features very bold florals. Created with white, pink and beige bugle and round beads, the florals are complemented with green leaves.

Of special interest, the handbag boasts two distinct designs, one on each side. This attention to detail is exquisite and a fine example of excellence in design artistry.. The beaded handle completes the detailing and is of midnight blue. The gold metal frame is impressed with design and has a knob clasp. Inside is a lavender taffeta lining with one pocket. This handbag is a beauty!

WHY I LIKE IT: The design and beadwork are created with fantastic detail and colors. I always carry handbags that are different and define my unique style and this is one is an example of such a selection.

BACKSTAMP(S): No makers mark. We believe this was made in France based upon similarities of the period.

Circa: Mid 20th Century

DIMENSIONS: 9/1/2” base x 8-1/2” top x 6” high x 1-1/4” gusset.

CONDITION: Very Good to Excellent. Slight Tarnish to inside gold metal frame on one side; small spot on lining.
