This is a beautiful flapper or deco era beaded purse from the 1920s or 1930s that has lovely dark blue Carnival Glass beads with a purple iridescence to them as they catch the light. The fringe is also beaded and what is amazing is the wonderful condition of the original lining which was decorated at the edges with embroidered flowers and has a nice sized inner pocket. It has an ornate gold metal frame with embossed flower decoration and a gold chain and measures 10 inches long from the top of the clasp to the bottom of the fringe. It is about 5.75 inches wide. The beading is quite intricate with a design that shows an X on both sides in which you can see the lining through, so it is highlighted.

Overall condition is very good, with minor wear to the frame and chain, considering the age, and I am not seeing any bead loss. I do see one string coming out of the side bottom and another area near the top corner where there are a few short stitches sticking out in an area at the top left of the X design where it looks like they may have attached the beads. The beads are not loose, though. The amount of bead work that must have gone into this piece is just incredible and we're lucky that is survived in such nice condition.
