From our personal collection, this rare and very long period beaded bag with an extremely ornate Greek Lyre surrounded
by clusters of rose, leaves and rosebuds. The top silverplated frame has a corresponding fancy floral motif and the original oval linked
handle. The workmanship in this bag is amazing and the bag therefore is quite heavy with the immense amount of artistic beadwork.
Both sides of the bag are the same. We have never seen a bag with this motif before, and it is hard to do it just with photographs.
Circa: 1910
Condition: Good original; normal wear from age on the interior of the silverplated frame; one tiny area on upper side with two loose threads (see photo).
Dimensions: 8" W x 13 1/2" (from clasp to base of fringe)
Price: $595.00
