An intriguing vintage beaded purse that has a great combination of Art Deco and Arts and Crafts design elements.
The Arts & Crafts style textured bronze frame has three round pearly green swirl art glass cabochons set in serrated edge bezels.
Triangular embossed raised details flank each of the cabs, it closes with an elegant pierced clasp.
The body of the bag has a dramatic optical design in clear seed beads woven into the black silk thread.
It has a great feminine shape that is pinched in at the center and flares out at the bottom.
The inside is lined with very soft kid glove leather.
It measures 5" across the frame, 6" across the bottom and 4.5" across the center where it is pinched in. The chain handle is 17".
Excellent condition, no damage, no visible bead loss, some minor signs of age- some of the thread that attaches the purse to the frame could use some reinforcing.
A very lovely and unique vintage beaded purse c1910-20.
