This is a delightful medium-sized purse with gilt frame and chain and decorated with gilt and two-tone silver coloured beads. The purse is decorated on both sides with intricate beading depicting a large stylized daisy with multiple petals surrounded by a scalloped frame of gilt beads. The bottom of the purse is decorated with an intricate pattern of tassels in the various tones of beads. Inside the purse is a lining of pale apricot heavy duty silk and there is an attached label stating that this purse was ‘Hand Made in France’. The clasp closes securely.
