Flapper Era Petite White and Bronze Beaded Purse, ca 1920s

$150.00 USD



  • Glass Beads
This beautiful purse is in excellent antique condition: the only flaws I can find are the missing female section of the snap that is used for closure and a tiny, barely discernible amount of fraying of the creamy beige silk moire interior lining.

The woman to whom it belonged told me it had first belonged to her mother who lived in France during the 1920s.

Measuring 5" round, the purse features an intricate design - almost a web - of white glass beads with a bronze glass bead placed at each "intersection;' the interior of the design is composed of a bronze beaded flower with a white center which in turn has a bronze center. The creamy beige silk moire lining peaks through all this. The 2" long (when extended) is composed of the white beads wrapped around what appears to be a silk string.

What a wonderful addition to your antique purse collection...this is a prime example of wearable Flapper Era textile art and style.
