A gorgeous ladies drawstring bag from a bygone era. Dating to the 1930s period this beaded delight is totally decadent with its hand strung glass beads, beaded upper looped fringe and matching beaded pom poms. It is of a good weight and dangles wonderfully. The red, black, grey and clear glass looped beads have the fluid look and feel that was all the rage on the dance floor. Complete with original drawstring and red silk lining.
Size: Purse body 7.5" tall by 3.75" wide when empty, expanding to a maximum of of approx 5.5". Purse height including base tassel 9.5". Purse drop when held from handle 19"
Condition: Good and sound, usable and strong. There are a couple of loose threads where a vertical row of beads has been lost but nothing major or untoward considering the multitude of beads overall in its making. There is a small less than 1/8" stitched repair to the red silk lining.
This is a pretty beaded bag of timeless design, perfect for a special occasion.
