This is an exceptional antique bag which dates to the Victorian Era. Made of black glass seed beads and having one of the most exquisite frames we have ever had the pleasure of seeing, this one is truly fantastic.
The ornate frame is made of german silver but is not hallmarked. The frame is so ornate with scrolling metal throughout and leaf designs scattered here and there. The clasp sits high and has beautiful floral designs on both the front and back. what I really like about this piece is the fact that the frame and the purse are equally as ornate on the front and the back.
The black lining is in very good condition also. The beading is so well done and we see no issues at all. A chain link handle completes the look.
The purse measures 12" from the top of the chain handle to the bottom of the flared bag. The bag itself measures 8" wide at the bottom and 5" wide at the handle. The bag is 5 1/2" high.
