Art Deco silk handbag with celluloid "cicada" clasp and frame, France 1920s

About

A most charming and most unusual handbag, with a beautiful hand painted 'cicada' sitting atop the frame, and silk fabric making the bag, in oyster with tangerine, cerulean and black decorations. It is also lined in cream silk with silk flower decoration. The handle/strap is of celluloid links. The bag itself is piped in cream silk, and the frame decorated with grey silk 'feathering' brocade. As stated elsewhere in this listing, both the frame and the fabric are original, from the 1920s, although very thoughtfully and carefully put together more recently.
