A stunning antique beaded purse. This circa 1900s flapper bag has an art nouveau floral metal frame and silvertone beads on a black fabric background. The beaded bag is in remarkable shape for its age. The metal chain has a nice heft to it, as it needs to carry a weighty metal beaded bag. The metal clasp still works. Silver beading is in very good vintage condition, with rust evident on some of the beads, the purple lining is in good condition. The purse is long, measures approximately 9 1/2" from frame to beaded end and 5" wide at frame.
A beautiful addition to the antique purse collection or a wonderful gift.
