About

This is an irresistible 1930s Antelope Suede evening ( or day!) bag with the most gorgeous and show stopping bead encrusted brass frame. The bag is Made in France and is a truly fine representative of that genre in its quality and style. The black suede is very soft and beautifully finished with silk cord piping all around the outer shape. The majestically ornate frame is covered with deep red glass beads which, typical of the period, have all been invisibly hand threaded onto the frame.. The metal chain is of good length , long enough for elbow wearing. The interior is lined with black silk satin and it has two mirror pockets facing each other. Please note that some of the brass beads claws are missing and there some sign of fading on the suede.
