This is a lovely antique Art Nouveau beaded bag with a silverplated frame and chain handle. The frame has a lovely Art Nouveau design, else I would have thought that it was from the Art Deco period based on the beadwork, so it may be a transitional piece. It dates to the early 20th century. The beads are black and silver.
It measures 5 1/2 inches by 4 inches and it is in good condition, except that it is missing the lining which looks to have rotted and been removed at some point. The beading is intact and I don't see any losses.
