Black & Silver Beaded 1930s Handbag

Black & Silver Beaded 1930s Handbag


Additional information




6 1/4" (not including handle) x 7" (at bottom); handle: 5 1/2" from center to top of frame





This 1930s handbag is just gorgeous! It is covered in black beads with a silver bead decoration on the front and back. The top handle is also covered in black beads. Aside from the lovely floral design, what makes this bag extraordinary is the decorative top of the silver metal frame. The fretwork is continued on the clasp, which hangs in the front. The inside has a smooth, shiny fabric lining with a pocket on each side. One holds a two-sided 2 ½” x 1 5/8” mirror with beveled edges. The high-quality of this unusual bag is felt in its weight. I confess that I’m guessing at the date of the purse, but I don’t think that matters. What a lovely and distinctive evening accessory!
