1900's Glass Micro Beaded Purse


Measures: 6" top to end of fringe, 4.5" wide, handle is 5" tall from top of purse

This is an absolutely gorgeous, elegant little purse! It is very heavy and well made. The beads are micro glass beads. There are 2 pockets inside, the interior is a cream colored material which I believe is satin but is possibly silk. There don't appear to be any beads missing, the interior has no tears. The handle is intact. There is a metal bar across the back of the purse at the opening, presumably for stability. It has poked through on one side just a bit but I believe this could be restored by a skilled hand. The fringe is in place and isn't missing any pieces. I have researched the piece to the best of my ability, I believe it is late Victorian so around 1900. I just love the sparkle this purse gives off, even in low light!
