This small, antique purse was hand made of black satin, and hand beaded with silver, metal beads. The handle is also beaded, and in very good condition. As you can see in the photos, there are some beads, and most of the beaded fringe on one side missing. I think it would look better to removed the remaining fringe on that size, but will let the new owner decide. The pink lining is clean and has no holes. The snap closure works easily, and is secure. It measures 4 inches tall, not including the handle, and 3&1/2 wide. Nice looking, despite the missing beads. Circa 1880-1900.
