1950s Black & Gold Beaded Evening Bag Purse Vintage
This is a most lovely vintage black and gold evening bag that dates to the 1950s.
The exterior of the purse is covered with black seed beads. Diagonal herringbone stripes and triangles are made with gold bugle beads and it's all attached to a lovely, textured gold tone frame. The fabric handle is also covered with black seed beads. Purse closes with a kiss clasp.
The interior is black satin and has a pocket on each side, one has a slightly elasticized top to put an item, slightly more bulky than a mirror pocket.
The purse measures 6" high from the bottom of the bag to the top of the gold frame and is about 8 3/4" wide at the bottom.
Excellent condition. I find no obvious missing beads and the interior is clean. The elastic on the one interior pocket is old and has lot a lot of its stretch.
