This small 1930s beaded clutch bag has white glass beads sewn in an attractive swirling pattern, both front and back. A lovely floral Tambour embroidered design on the front of the purse features a large pale pink flower in the center and on each side of the bottom of the bag are smaller peach color posies. On each side of the top of the purse are even smaller powder blue and periwinkle blue flowers. Embroidered leaves in celadon green connect the blossoms. All the flowers have white beaded centers. This pretty evening bag is lined in Ivory satin and has a small side pocket. There is a silver tone snap closure and a small thumb hanger.

Condition: Very Good

The beadwork and embroidery is in excellent condition considering that this beautiful evening purse is from the 1930s! Very faint yellowing on the material around the top of the frame and this is from age. There are several small dots of discoloration on the material on the back of the purse and these two dots may show up in the photos and several tiny dots on the front which also may be visible in the photos. One spot is a tiny red dot on the thumb hanger and the other is a tiny brown dot on the left side back of bag. The inside of the bag is remarkable clean with the exception of marks on the fabric that have been made by the metal hinges being against the material. There is just the very faintest bit of soiling on the interior material of the thumb hanger…..and, not very noticeable because it is on the interior. All in all, this evening purse is in very nice condition.
