Beaded evening bag French beaded bag vintage beaded bag

* This is wonderful vintage beaded formal bag marked "Made In France" and boy is it heavy! The beaded design is the same on both sides and is created with sparkling black and charcoal seed beads with longer black bugle beads making a "V" shape. The interior of the bag is a black satiny material which is in great condition. The frame is made of silver metal and has a short chain handle.

* This evening bag is 5 1/8" tall and 7 1/2" wide and is securely attached to a decorative brass frame bearing an 8" chain.

* Overall condition is excellent vintage. The satiny black interior has a "Made in France" tag and has no rips, stains or other noticeable flaws. All of the beads are in excellent condition, but there is one long bugle bead missing on each side of the bag. The missing beads do not affect the appearance of the bag and since each bead is individually sewn on, the surrounding beads are still securely fastened. The clasp shows some wear but is in good working condition as is the frame.

This beautiful formal/ evening bag would be just perfect for that special evening out!
