Elegant hand beaded tapestry evening purse, circa 1960, made by DuVal of Hong Kong. In the mid 1900's, high quality purses were made in Hong Kong for exportation to the west. These purses required days and weeks of intricate needlework by skilled seamstresses.
The purse is 7" x 6", floral tapestry, accented with tiny deep "antique gold" colored glass seed beads. It has a deep yellow satin lining, side pocket and is marked "Du Val, Hong Kong" on the inner label.
The purse is in excellent vintage condition, with no loose or missing beads. The clasp closes securely and the lining has minimal signs of wear and no stains from ink or make-up. It has been well cared for, and has no odors or other issues.
