Very nice antique beaded purse in great colors. Mainly a dark plum with green, orange, dark mauve-pink and dark blue-black with some red and yellow too. Same design on the front and the back. Floral etched framed with flower pinch closure. The frame is kind of silver and gold. Beaded strap, lined in silk. No labels, no marks inside of the frame.
CONDITION: The bag is in very good condition on the outside of the body, I see no loose or missing beads on the bags, but there are a few threads sticking out here and there. There are some loose and missing beading on the strap.
The frame is mostly a silver tone, but some remnants of a gold finish remains, frame is tarnished.
The silk lining is fair and it has several large splits in it.
