This is an absolutely beautiful antique cut steel beaded handbag dating from the Victorian era. So many times I have picked this up in our brick and mortar shop and debated about keeping it for myself.

It is so gorgeous and has great weight to it. It is sparkling and is of obvious high quality.

Beautifully crocheted French-blue silk cord makes up the pouch while dazzling cut steel beads are integrated within to create an absolutely sparkling exterior.

Each steel bead is faceted as to catch the light with every angle.

Their silvery-gray finish compliments the soft blue-gray of the crocheted silk perfectly.

The pouch is attached to a rigid silver-tone frame at the top.

This little beauty has a lot of gorgeous character on its own, the frame features glorious stamped decorations on each side characterized by a graceful floral motif.

A simple two ball clasp keeps the bag securely shut while the short length of silver-tone chain that emanates from each side makes it perfectly simple to carry and display.

The interior of the handbag is lined with dazzling gray silk.

It is unusual to find bags like this one with their lining intact, making this a truly rare beauty.

With only some darkening and minor finish loss to the silver-tone metals and hardware, this spectacular Victorian purse remains in great antique condition.

This beauty still has all of its original beads.

You'll love the visual and tactile appeal it adds to your collection.
