This wonderful beaded purse from the mid century has a few unique characteristics: it is a large size for its genre, it has the "Artbag" label sewn inside and the frame is unusual and its type is rarely seen. Probably made in France, this purse is in wonderful condition since it was restored by the Artbag company, a company located on New York's Madison Avenue that repairs and restores accessories. They are the "real deal" and have been around for decades. They probably created a new lining for this bag. The shape of the bag is typical of this type of evening bag and the beaded pattern is done is small white beads, faux pearls. They have a slight sheen to them. They are sewn in a swirling, curvy manner. There are thousands twirling around on the bag. There is a gold tone tubular chain with a drop of 4". The frame is a "flip up" type. It is spectacular and this type of frame is considerably rare, I have only seen it a handful of times in all the years that I have been doing this. Words are difficult to describe it. Baby pink and sky blue enameling is coated with a thick overlay of what appears to be clear glass (?). There is crackling so that it looks like cracked ice or rock candy sugar. On top are 8 raised "mounds" of this clear material molding into what looks like "beads" that combine to form these accents. They are sprinkled with gold enameling. They are high on the flat surface and very textural. The entire frame is a work of art and as I said, not often seen. The frame is just gorgeous and very unusual. The sides of the frame are bordered by gold tone filigree. The inside of the frame is a shiny gold tone metal. The lining of the bag is a replacement by Artbag. It is a peacock blue satin fabric and there are two open pockets. A small coin purse and a mirror are included. The label "Artbag Creations New York" is sewn inside. Obviously the inside does not show wear or age signs. The purse measures 8 1/2"w x 7 1/2"h x 2"d. The bag as a whole is in wonderful condition. Obviously someone loved this bag to go to the expense of having a new lining put in especially at a luxury Madison Ave firm. However, the condition shows that she did not use it much, Perfect for the bride or for anyone who loves mid century beaded bags, this one is certainly unique and just gorgeous. A rare find indeed. Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
