So much fun! This purse,from the mid century, is showy, bright an so much fun! Rather square shaped, it's straight lines are contrasted with the many large round beads covering its surface. The background is an off white net like material that can hardly be seen because of the multitude of plastic beads. The beads are about the size of a pea and they are set in a pattern of rows and lines. Very linear. They are rounded and are primary colors of red, green, yellow, blue, and white. There seems to be no color pattern to their placement. They give the bag dimension as well as whimsy. So cool, so much fun! There is a shiny thin gold frame and the bag closes with a large kiss clasp. There is a simple gold chain used to carry the bag. It has a drop of 6 1/2". The lining is an off white satiny fabric. "Grandee Bead Made in USA Pat No. ---" is imprinted on the fabric in gold. The inside is very clean with some very minor indications of age or usage. The measurements of the bag are 8"w x 7 1/4"h x 1 1/2"d. The bag is in great condition and the exterior shows no imperfections. This bag reminds me of the "button candy strips" that were so popular years ago with the exception of the colors, the bag is primary colored, the candy was pastel colored. That candy was so much fun as is this bag. Eating the candy as well as wearing the bag brings smiles to one face and a feeling of happiness.
Again so much fun! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
