Oxblood Red Beaded Art Deco Flapper Drawstring Reticule Purse.
This is a flirty purse with a geometric pattern formed by unbeaded squares and bands of the dark tan base fabric. The glass beads are uniform in size and color (with the exception of 1 black bead!). It has fringe loops around the top and in two rows at the bottom. The silvertone, braided chain that creates the drawstring has an open loop at each end. The interior is a woven cherry red taffeta fabric and it has both machine and hand stitching.
It is unmarked and measures about 5 ½" tall and 4 ½" wide at the top.
Condition: no stains, musty smell or fading; there doesn't appear to be any missing beads with the exception of one fringe loop on the top of the two bottom rows of fringe; the ends of the drawstring chain are not connected.
This is an attractive purse with great color and an interesting pattern. We are always offering a nice selection of jewelry and other vintage goodies, so please take a look through our shop. We would be pleased to combine shipping on multiple purchases.
Thank you for shopping with Cousins Antiques!
