This is a Flapper Era or earlier Art Deco Fringed Beaded Purse or Bag with blue, red, teal and yellow glass beads. The bag is heavy due to all the beading and looped fringing. The colors are great! Underneath the fringe, there is an abstract and scrollwork design to the body of the purse. There is some blue fringe missing on one side and some red fringe missing on the other. The beadwork is stable. The interior black silk lining is completely intact with a little pocket and floral blue and pink silk and metal thread trimming. The stylized repousse metal frame shows a little wear from use but has not oxidized, and the acorn finial clasp closes tightly. The paper clip metal chain measures 14 1/2 inch long. The bag itself measures 8 1/2 inch by 6 inch, and including the height with the chain, it measures 15 1/2 inch long.
