Lovely mid century French purse by Josef with satin tag attached to lining reading Bags by Josef Handed Beaded in France.
This wearable treasure is backed with a champagne color silk and beaded with a combination of tiny faux peals, silver colored bugle beads and then enhanced with lovely tambour embroidered roses and leaf designs. Clear faceted stones that simulate diamonds adorn the top, one of which is missing. The interior pocket is fitted with both the original mirror and coin purse.

Measures 6.25 " across the top, 8.25" at its widest point and 5.75" in height.
The silver tone carry chain adds 5 inches,
