Large Edwardian Beaded Silk Bag with Celluloid Frame
Era - early 1900s
Measurements - The purse is about 13 x 14 inches.
Label - none
Fabric - silk
Soft bodied, black silk purse with red and green glass beaded flowers on the front and slightly different design on the back. Lined in acetate. The bottom is folded to creat a wide flat bottom, but hanging as I have it in the photo, it just looks long and floppy. Silk strap attached to the dark celluloid frame
Condition - Very good condition. There are 2 pin head holes on the side with the 2 flowers and a 1/4 inch slit on the front side. The silk strap is frayed and split on the edges. Some wear on the frame under the closure.
