L342 LOT OF 2 1920s BEADED PURSES EDWARDIAN AND FRENCH ART DECO BAKELITE FRAME
We are pleased to offer this Lot of 2 Antique Art Deco Era Beaded Purses. One with a Brass Jeweled Rhinestone Frame with a pretty delicate pink rose floral pattern. The other is a French Beaded Art Deco Era with Bakelite Frame and a Pink floral bouquet in a green and blue vase. As far back as the Middle Ages, both men and women carried purses. Although these medieval bags rarely held the scarce commodity of money, they did serve to carry other small personal items such as important papers for men and sewing implements for ladies.These early purses often reflected the social status of the carrier. More elaborately embroidered and embellished bags usually found a home with society's most affluent members. Some of the most popular purses with collectors these days are the beaded and metal mesh examples of the late 19th and early 20th century. These hard to find early beaded purses are a must have for the more serious antique beaded purse collector. Research Consulted: Restoring & Collecting Antique Beaded Purses by Evelyn Haertig....
