Bright green and aqua silk brocade lining.

CONDITION: Good condition with bead loss. 
There is black beading missing from along the top edge of both sides of the bag.
There are strands of beaded loops missing from the bottom edge.
There is a 1 inch strand of loose/missing black beads near the top on one side.
There are 2 splits (1 inch ans 1-1/2 inch long) in the beading on one side next to the hing of the frame. These splits will need to be stabilized because they will get worse. It's the mesh that the beading is attached to that is split.
Otherwise the bag is nice, makes a very nice display piece, needs restoration to use.
