Art Ceco micro beaded purse, circa 1920 - 1930. The purse is 4 3/4" x 6 1/8", with a short embossed chain handle and decorative frame. There is a subtle floral design in the copper and silver-toned metallic beads.
The inside is pale tan satin. It is clean, but there are slight tears at the corners and a frayed bit in the center, as shown in the photos. The brass frame of the purse is especially nice, with a clever push button clasp and flower pattern embossed on the metal. Note the side pieces that hold the handle.
There is some fraying of the beadwork near the top and on the lower corner. Few, if any, beads appear to be lost, but we are storing this in a zip-lock bag as a precaution. Please review the photos, front and back, as we have tried to show all details.
