Floral Glass Beaded Drawstring Reticule Purse.
This elegant purse has a flower and shell pattern, accented with scrolls and lattice. The glass beads are uniform in size and the rich, jewel tone colors include sapphire and sky blue, emerald and pale olive green, rose and baby pink, clear, and shades of brown and gold. The background color is a brownish purple, tending more to the brown shade than the photos show. We photographed this purse in natural light, but the color still shows more purple than it is.
It has fringe loops along the bottom. The dark cord that creates the drawstring has a tassel at each end. The interior is a sateen royal blue and black damask and the rings for the drawstring are early plastic.
It is unmarked and measures about 6 ½" tall and 5 ½" wide at the top.
Condition: no stains, musty smell or fading; one fringe loop on the bottom is missing and one side seam is separating, as shown.
This purse has a detailed pattern with fabulous colors and a feminine pattern. It would be a great addition to any collection!
