This gorgeous Victorian antique evening bag is hand beaded with Bronze, Gold and Silver microbeads.
All the beads are perfectly intact except for a few missing strands of fringe at the bottom of the bag. The Satin lining is in great condition.
This lovely gem features a meticulously hand-beaded flower motif on both sides and trimmed with a fabulous fringe (there are a few fringes missing). The patina on the frame is very nice and original I have not attempted to clean or polish. This purse closes tightly with a kiss lock, it is fully lined
Approx. Size: 6.4" high including + 1.5" fringe x 5" wide 11.5" drop chain handle
Big enough for a lipstick, keys, cellphone and compact and perhaps even Opera glasses? Finely embroidered hankie?
This is a lovely heavyweight bag with brass strap.
Condition: The clasp closes nice and tight. There a few missing beaded fringe, the beaded bag needs to be stitched to the frame in one area (as shown), the stitches have come loose. Please see detailed photographs. Although not perfect it is in excellent vintage condition for its age.
These are just SO hard to come by, as collectors would know.
An absolutely gorgeous piece!
