Here's another example of my love affair with red purses. Be it a formal purse or a causal day one, I just love red. And the compliments I receive when wearing one! Red, to me, is alive. It denotes passion, risk, adventure while being confident and intense at the same time. And let's not forget its romantic qualities. This purse has all of these adjectives plus it has an art deco influence. The purse is a sort of bee hive shape, being roundish and wider at the bottom than at the top. It is a bright lip stick red. THe purse is covered with teeny tiny vibrant red beads. It's beadwork was probably hand done and there are 28 beads to the inch. This is micro beading. It is probably French but there is no identification marks. There is a swirling ribbon like pattern of shining iridescent tiny ruby glass beads. These beads contrast with the matte fire red beads and seem to "dance" throughout the front and back of the purse. These beads reflect the light giving the pattern energy and life. It is very art deco in effect. The bag closes with two elegant kiss clasp that are fully encrusted with rhinestones. They are attached to a shiny gold tone frame which is only seen on the inside. The outside is beaded. There is a dainty double chain link chain as a carry strap. It has a drop of over 5". The contrast of the intense red beading and the light and airy chain provides additional interest to the bag. The lining is a ruby red satin material. There are two open slip pockets. The inside is very clean with one "hard to see" spot. The measurements are 9"w x 5 1/2"h x 1 1/2"d. This bag is fabulous even for a non red lover. A stunner with an all black outfit. Sure to be noticed and admired. COndition: Excellent VINTAGE COndition
