Edwardian Beaded Purse
Item BE1: Beautifully designed and constructed vintage beaded purse with humility bead (which indicates one-of-a-kind). V-e-r-y vibrant colors and no missing beads on body of purse (only six missing from fringe which can be easily duplicated). Colors include red, deep blue, greens, pink, browns, yellow, etc. The frame, which I believe is bronze as it's very heavy and has patina, is exquisite...a sideways tulip design with 'draped' leaves (over the beading), and with strong/secure chain handle. Twist open.
The inside is missing the lining, but the original adorable floral trim still remains. There is plenty of room to attach a new liner if you wished to do so. The handle is a strong matching double chain.
Italian made, but the tag is missing and there are no marks I can find on the frame.
Measurements: Overall length 15" - Purse length 9 1/4" - width 6"
