This is a genuine 1920’s Czechoslovakian Beaded Art Deco Dance Bag. These beautiful, durable treasures were made with the highest quality which is a reason why they last in far better condition than many from that era. Dance bags were popular as more and more Ladies were attending events of which dancing was a major part. These personal sized bags could be held in the palm with a finger and twirled while dancing through the solidly made zipper chain. Having brilliant glass beads reflecting the lights, they really stood out.
This sterling gem is circa 1921 to 1923 from the style of the tag inside. It is complete with its original mirror still inside. It is also from the private collection and it is excellent condition.
Made of Czech glass pellet beads in Amber, Brown, Tan, and Soft White with Czech glass tube beads in a gorgeous Art Deco pattern, the effect is stunning. All of the beads are in place as can be seen and none are loose on threads. These beads are made from genuine glass in a very complicated method that was used for over 300 years.
Open the zipper to see the Crème silk lining. No odors of age, no perfume, and only a couple of minor marks of no significance that are easily removed. This beautiful bag is approaching 100 years old but does not show it. You will be really pleased when you see it and it will make a wonderful addition to the vintage, Art Deco collection.
The dimensions are 7”L x 5”H and with tissue it is 1” thick.
