At one time it was quite fashionable to make little bags for one's doll, and I think the instructions came in magazines of the time. This little mommy-made purse measures 3" x 2 1/2 and is decorated with white and blue beads in a round pattern. The metal frame is embossed with roses and leaves. The chain hangs about 4 1/2 inches.
The bag is in good shape; I see that the frame has darkened and on one side there may be some missing beads--all commensurate with age and there are no beads falling off. Cute for a fashion doll or any doll who needs a little something.
