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 opens by lifting up on the frame.
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.
