Offering a beaded evening bag by Langlois and Jargeais, France circa 1960's. I believe Langlois and Jargeais was an exclusive store in Paris where luxury items were sold. This is a particularly nice bag of this type. It is not too glitzy, but rather emphasizes classic style and design. The body of the bag is exclusively small ebony seed beads. The frame is basically goldtone. However its background is black enamel upon which goldtone "feathers" are sculpted. These feathers lay horizontally and they are etched with veins. The piece that they are on has a scalloped edge. The foldover clasp closes tightly and it too has a goldtone feather vertically decorating it. There is a tiny chip to the black enamel on the border of the foldover clasp. I didn't even notice till i looked it over for sale. The back of the frame is black enameled. There is antiqued looking goldtone chain with a drop of 5". The inside is lined with a black satin fabric. It is very clean inside. There is a open slip pocket and the "Langlois and Jargeais Made in France cloth label is affixed inside. The measurements of the purse are 8.5"w x 6"h x 2"d. A classic and timeless design that can be dressed up or down. This is a "forever" purse. Condition: Excellent Vintage Condition
