This a darling vintage set of hand-embroidered and beaded eyeglass and comb case made exclusively for Saks Fifth Avenue.
These would have been a fantastically stylish way to keep your delicate glasses and comb safe inside your purse.
The eyeglass case features four embroidered roses on each side. They are rendered in delicate pink and peach-colored thread in an expertly finished chain stitch.
Each rose is framed in border of grey beads. There are four grey rhinestones on each side of the case as well which are also framed in grey beads.
The rest of the case is covered with thousands of white beads which emanate outward in the shapes of the roses and the rhinestones.
The comb case has the same decoration as the eyeglass case, but is slightly smaller.
Both cases are lined with lovely genuine and silk and exhibit a screen printed maker's mark which reads "Made in Belgium Exclusively for Saks Fifth Avenue".
The meticulous craftsmanship that went into both of the fantastic vintage pieces is really just astounding. They're so delightfully graceful, we think they are a fantastic find for a serious collector.
Each case is in fantastic condition with no loose threads or beads missing.
