We almost don't have the words to describe this vintage cylinder bag / purse. Glamorous, sexy, elegant, stylish, glitzy...okay, maybe we do have the words.
It is such and cool, classic and fun bag. The shape, colors, texture and the top, put IT over the top!
As you can see, the handbag's rigid body is absolutely covered, top-to-bottom, in stunning iridescent green seed beads.
Even the elegant twisted strap is coated in hand-applied beads.
Each bead is covered in tiny facets, so the rich, shimmering peacock-green color catches the light with every new angle. This bag absolutely sparkles.
The lid is made of hard Lucite with a sensational faux-Bakelite finish. The dark, striated sienna and amber colors compliment the shimming green beads beautifully.
A simple brass rocker clasp keeps the lid securely shut, while allowing it to be easily opened on the matching brass hinge.
Inside, the handbag is lined with divine black satin. It shows a tiny bit of wear and one or two stray threads but still looks great overall.
With only one or two minor scratches on the Lucite lid, this beautiful bag remains in great vintage condition.
This bag is a head turner, sure to garner loads of compliments.
