French Vintage Evening Bag Handbag Metallic Embroidery Beaded Pearls Gold Silk



This lovely handbag was made in France in the late 1910's or early 1920's. The bag has a beautiful faux pearls on the clasp and the frame and is made of a soft gold silk. The bag has tiny gold beads, and the embroidery in done with gold and copper metal thread - truly exquisite. There are some very very small spots that you can see in the photographs that really showed up only when I photographed them - hard to see with the naked eye. The inside silk is starting to deteriorate, but the rest of the bag is strong and beautiful! This bag measures 6 and 1/2" by 8 and 1/4" and the strap has a 6" drop.
