This is a lovely, beautiful vintage glass bead hand-beaded art deco 1920s ladies' purse. It features a cobalt blue primary tone, with art deco patterning and botanical motifs in scarlet red, black, and kelly green. The purse has a tapered silhouette with a kiss-lock and metal interior frame. It is lined in a rust colored silk, and has a medium-short length fabric wrist strap. The purse is perfect for a 1920s collector, someone who needs a pop of vintage color for a formal event, or to hang on the wall as a beautiful piece of art and fashion history.
The purse is in good vintage condition with age-appropriate wear. There are some missing beads, which should be visible in the photographs, none that interfere with the decorative imagery of the piece but mostly happening near the frame and on the strap of the bag. The interior silk has some minor shredding and other age-appropriate wear, and the interior hand mirror has some wear and patina as well.
The bag measures 7 inches long, and is 8 inches wide at the widest part toward the bottom.
