On Sale Vintage 1940s Purse Clear And Black Lucite Beads Over Floral Print :
This is a very unusual and interesting handbag. The beadwork is done all over, using small black and clear lucite beads. On one side of the bag, we're actually seeing the colored flowers through the clear lucite beadwork. On the other side, the purse and beading are all black. As a result of the different sides, this is a two-for-one bag.
The purse is mounted on a solid black lucite frame. A very nice kiss style lock opens the bag to a solid black taffeta lining, which has one envelope style pocket edged with gold braid trim.
Condition: Good vintage condition. However, there are two major areas of bead loss on the floral side. This is only noticeable up close. There are also smaller areas of bead loss throughout, including on the handle. Once again, this doesn't take away from the beauty of the purse and cannot be seen even at a short distance. The interior is pristine.
Size: The bag is approximately 11 inches wide at the bottom, 9 inches high, with a handle drop of about 6 inches
