Gorgeous beaded bag with floral pattern on both front and back, twisted beaded handle and silken drawstring closure with beaded ball trim, fully lined in soft fabric with a woven floral design. Measures 4" x 3-1/2" with a 3-3/4" drop. Small enough for a child or large doll but just large enough to slip over a lady's wrist for a night of dancing. Circa 1890s - 1920s.
This lovely purse glows in jewel-tones of bright blue, deep red and pale lavender with accents of green, yellow and black. The lining is a luscious pomegranate that contrasts beautifully with the blue of the main body.
In good condition, all intact with strong interior fabric. There are two small marks that look like pen marks on one top edge of the lining (pictured), some loose beads on the handles and a few loose thread ends here and there.
A true vintage beauty in a petite size.
Beautiful antique and vintage dolls, evening bags and sewing patterns.
Just returned from Europe with many wonderful finds -- dolls, doll fashions and accessories, toy furniture and miniatures.
