1930's Beaded Evening Bag Purse Carnival Beads Vintage
This great looking beaded evening bag was handmade circa the 1920's or 30's. It's pouch purse style with long fringe is reminiscent of the flapper era. The beads are irridescent carnival glass which sparkles and appears to change color as they move... dark blue, light blue, green, purple, magenta, and coppery rose. The beads are all crocheted or woven into place (you can see the pattern on the interior). There appears to be one fringe loop that has broken... you can see the remnant of thread to indicate that. It could be repaired with a new bead loop or the thread knotted inside where it couldn't be seen. It wouldn't be that noticeable that it's missing. When I purchased the bag from an estate sale about 25 years ago, it didn't have a drawstring... just the metal loops where someone had intending to put it. I added the purple ribbon so I could hang it for display. The bag measures 8.5" long x 5.5" at the widest. It's in very good condition with exceptions noted.
