Antique Beaded Purse 1900s Art Nouveau, made in Belgium, Black Grey Floral, as is with issues
MEASUREMENTS: The purse is about 6 x 61/2 inches plus strap
MATERIAL: glass beads
LABEL: made in Belgium
Black and grey opaque glass beads with floral designs with blue and green beading. Same design on both sides. Loops of beading along the bottom. Beaded strap, grey silk lining with floral edging. Celluloid frame
CONDITION: The purse is in good condition with issues. The beading is actually very good. I see no loss on the body of the bag, but there are some loops of beads missing from one side on the bottom.
The celluloid frame is totally split/broken and it is also broken on each side at hinge - cannot be repaired. There are some beads missing on the strap.
Get a new frame and you'll have a very nice little purse.
