Vtg Antique 1920s Micro Glass Seed Bead Beaded Victorian Era Motif Purse Handbag For Sale
TRUE 10 DAY sale WITH ON THIS BEAUTIFUL ITEM!!!
Here’s a true vintage Victorian styled glass "seed bead" microglass beaded purse (hobo bag?), just purchased from an estate.
The beads are very small, and the detail is stunning. It is very smooth to the touch. There is no makers / manufacturers trademark or tag present.
The design and motif is of a courting of a young lady, complete with chaperone. Though it has the attributes of a purse made perhaps from another era, it was likely made in the 1920’s- a patent mark from either December 1925 or 1929 is stamped on the back of the handle (as pictured).
It measures 7 inches wide across the handle, and 10-1/2 inches long from the top of the handle to the bottom of the main beaded area. The hand bag weighs 13 ounces.
The condition of the beading is excellent- there are no stains or areas of missing beads we could see after a close inspection, and both sides match. The cloth inner pouch has no tears, unusual wear, or damage, and actually is very deep, nearly to the bottom of the purse.
The handle may have a few areas of tarnish & light wear, and the latch is in excellent working order. OF COURSE, IT IS MISSING SOME OF THE FRINGE BEADS, AND WILL NEED A RESTORATION. Most purses this old likely have the same condition issue, and we will leave the restoring to the buyer.
The maximum 12 photos have been included so one could make an accurate evaluation before offerding.

AFTER LOOKING AT THE PHOTOS, IT MAY APPEAR THAT THE COLORS ARE "WASHED OUT". THIS IS NOT THE CASE. THE LIGHTING ON THE CAMERA WAS SET A BIT TOO BRIGHTLY. THE COLORS ARE RICH AND VIBRANT WHEN THE PURSE IS VIEWED UNDER A NORMAL LIGHT!!
