Up for sale is a fully beaded purse which is crocheted with thousands of tiny black jet seed beads. There is a hand set lining.
For its age, it is in excellent condition.
This purse shimmers quite stunningly. The design is an "all over" beading with a wonderful beaded tassel. The beads all seem to be present. The differences in color is not wear, just difference in the way the light hits it.
I have no provenance for this beautiful piece I purchased from an antique dealer. I have not seen anything of this quality or style since my mother and aunt both made theirs in the 1940s.
The bag is 7" tall x 10". The zipper is 6.5". The bottom of the purse is 8" x 3.5". The lining is black faille with no inside pocket. The handle is 1.5" x 18".
