This purse looks like it is straight out of a fairy tale. I call it the "Cinderella" purse since I can imagine Cinderella running down the stairs with this purse on her gloved wrist. To me, this bag is enchanting and charming and its iridescent beads sparkle like ice. (Perhaps the bag is better suited for Elsa or Anna of Frozen!). The bag was made by Josef, a mid century designer, especially known for his high end beaded bags. This bag was hand beaded in France. The bag is typically formed for its genre with the bottom being wider than the top. It has straight lines and soft curves. It is tightly ruched at the top which results in flows and pleats. These create depth to the bag. The bag is completely covered with tiny iridescent clear beads which sparkle and shine. They remind me of rock sugar. Underneath and barely seen are faint pastel vertical lines of baby blue, soft lemon yellow and baby pink. These lines are soft and almost hidden. The effect of the lines covered by the sparkle takes one to a fairyland, hence the Cinderella name. The frame is a shiny gold tone and it is covered with large bezel shaped rhinestones, both marquis and round shaped. They are raised and are not flat against the metal. The closure is a knob encased in a circle ring accent. There is a carry chain with a drop of 5". The inside is lined in a silky champagne colored fabric. There is an open slip pocket and a cloth label identifies "Bags by Josef Made in France". The inside is in great condition with a few minor indications of age or wear. The measurements of the bag are 8 1/2"w x 5 1/2"h x 1 1/2"d. The bag is in wonderful condition. Only the most minor signs of wear and age are seen. You don't have to go to a fairy land ball, to enjoy this bag. Perfect for the bride, it is timeless, classic and oh so sweet. Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
