This beaded purse is a beauty from the pre-WWII era. It features steel cut, shimmering, dark gray micro beads. Both sides have a diamond shaped design bordered with pink flowers, a deep turquoise background with blue and yellow flowers in the center. These purses were hand made, requiring many hours of detail work. Most were done in France or Belgium, but this one gives no indication of its origin. The frame is a brassy color with a stamped design with a kiss clasp and attached chain. Purses like this are truly works of art!
Measurements: The bag is 9.5 inches long the frame to the bottom and 7 inches wide across the bottom. The chain is about 15.5 inches long and extends from the frame approximately 7 inches. This purse is larger than many of the micro bead purses from this era and will hold all your essentials.
Condition: The beaded design is in wonderful condition with some fraying and loss of beads along the frame edges (clearly shown in photos) and a bit of bead loss at the very bottom edge. The lining is intact with dust and smudging. The frame is in very good contain. Please use the zoom feature to review all photographs carefully, as they are an important part of the description.
Labels/Marks: The purse is handmade without any labels.
