Please note this clutch purse came from the same estate as the black one.
You are looking at a beautiful Josef beaded clutch purse which was hand beaded in France. There is a satin label which reads: Bags by... Josef, Hand Beaded in France, which is done in gold lettering. This purse dates to the 1940's-50's.
The lining is done in antique creamy white satin. There are two open pockets, one on each side. Each is approximately 4 7/8" across & 2 1/2" deep.
The workmanship is exquisite, the background is done in white beads and there is very ornate multi-color Tambour embroidery. The Tambour embroidery is done in multi colored pinks, greens & blues, with some antique gold metallic work.
The frame is beautiful; hand enameled in the same colors as the tambour embroidery.
The purse measures approximately 9" along the widest portion in the center & 5 3/4" top to bottom, not including the frame. The sides extend out to approx. 2".
The condition is near mint, with the only minor flaw to note are some light spots/soiling in the lining.
This vintage Josef hand beaded in France purse is outstanding in every way; you will love it.
