Pretty, antique bag that is decorated with several colors of glass beads. It has it's original silver colored frame and chain handle. It measures 7 inches tall, by 6 inches wide. The clasp works perfectly. The inside, black lining is in excellent condition, and the fabric is not pulling away at the side hinges, which is a common problem with many of these vintage, beaded purses. The fringe is intact, with no missing strands. There are a couple of flaws. The metal frame shows wear, and oxidation. I have not tried to clean or polish it. The most noteworthy flaw is that there are missing beads, on both sides, at the top near the frame. I have included several photos, including both sides. The flaws have been taken into consideration with the low price. Circa 1890.
I currently have several other vintage and antique purses in my shop, and am happy to combine shipping. To see them all, type "purse" in the California Girls search box at the top of this page.
If you are ordering more than 1 item from my shop, wait to pay until I send back an invoice with the combined shipping discount.
