Edwardian c. 1900-1910 glass beaded drawstring purse with crocheted silk top features a pattern of yellow and pink/red roses on an olive green ground, identical on both sides.

The base of the purse is accented with a foliate design, in yellow and light and dark green, that is an adaptation of the 6- and 8-point star patterns so popular in steel beaded purses at the time.

Photo #5 shows period patterns for beaded roses (from the April 1902 issue of the Home Needlework magazine), and for an 8-pointed star (from the January 1900 issue of the same magazine).

The combination of opague and translucent beads, along with the striking colorway, make for a lovely and collectible example of Edwardian beadwork.

Measuring 6” x 4 ¼”, the purse is unlined and in excellent condition with no flaws to note.
