If you're looking for a spectacular antique beaded bag for your purse collection, this beauty is it. It is the most exquisite purse that I have ever seen .Gorgeous jeweled frame beautifully paired with the color and pattern in the carpet bag design. Very rare to see one with this much detail and unbelievable color! Blue, ruby red, cream, jade green. The spectacular filigree frame is loaded with jewels in matching shades to the beadwork. Large jade green cabochon surrounded by triangular "emeralds" and round "rubies" adorn the corners. The top finial and fastener resembles the tops on jeweled perfume bottles of the period and also features the same stones in a filigree medallion design, below this are two matching jewels at the center of the frame. It is a MAGNIFICENT size at 12 1/2" long to edge of fringe.. (14" including finial clasp), 7 7/8" wide. Chain is embellished with gold filigree and amethyst type beads and measures 16:. The interior features the original green silk moire fabric lining. Pretty great shape with some areas of stress to the fabric. Purse and frame are in excellent shape.. Truly a work of art that has been babied over the last century. You will not find another like it.
