Red seed bead vintage purse evening handbag

* This small vintage bag was made with deep red seed beads crocheted in a classic and elegant pattern. The frame gold plated metal and the tips of the crossover closure are dark blue glass beads. The chain link handle is also gold metal. The inside of the purse is red cloth that is hand embroidered with flowers where the beads and cloth are attached to the frame. Based on the inside finishes, this pretty little purse appears to be homemade.

* This vintage purse measures 5 1/2" long and 6 1/2" wide at the bottom. The interior of the bag measures 4" deep and 5" wide. The chain is 16" long in total. Due to its size, this item will not be shipped in a gift box.

* This pretty evening bag is in very good vintage condition. There is one visible snag which is shown in the last photo, otherwise the beads are securely attached to each other and the frame. The frame of the bag shows some plating loss in spots but the frame overall is shiny, as is the chain. The closure is in good working condition and keeps the bag closed.

All items are shipped in a gift box unless otherwise noted. Also included is a 10% off discount code for future purchases.

All Bakelite is tested using a variety of methods. These include Simichrome polish, hot water (smell test), tapping bangles together for the appropriate sound, and checking for mold lines and other discrepancies.
