Vintage 1920's Blue and Black Beaded Peacock Purse with Fringe.
This is truly a beautiful purse. The colors range from turquoise blue in the peacock, chartreuse in the tail feathers and for the leaves, copper for the branches with reds and pinks for the flowers. There is a floral framework (dark gray with red flowers) of beading just beneath the purse frame and above the peacock, that highlights the black beaded background and gives the purse more depth of design.
The lining is gold silk and in excellent condition, as is the purse as a whole. The frame shows age to the finish but I have not attempted to clean it and will leave that up to it's new owner, should they choose to do so. The beads are all remarkably tight and intact.
The purse measures 9" long, 10.5" long with fringe, 6.5" wide and add another 6.5" in length with the chain.
Thank you so much for stopping by and as always, please feel free to contact me with any questions.
