Measurements: 4 1/2" wide at the top, when laid fully flat 8 3/4" long
Condition: very good, considering its great age! There are a few small pulls and it looks like it has been repaired at least once. Two black beads have been replaced with red beads, but this is just barely noticeable. A few of the jet beads are missing & some are a bit loose, but it somehow still looks like it is new!---1910 Hand Beaded Purse
The best things come in small packages!
Tiny-tiny elegance in one, very vintage bag. This purse was hand-beaded over 100 years ago. Wouldn't we all love to look so perfect at 100-years-old? It is very fine woven work with silver beads placed into a charming balance of intricate & simple design. Silver beads jingle in a fringe of multi-faceted balls & slim ovals. An airy curve of fine, carved & detailed silver colored frame floats as a more solid reflection of the fringe's curve. Incredible!
