About

Rare and striking fringed Victorian beaded bag depicting an oriental rug. The detail here is just extraordinary. Thousands upon thousands of tiny glass seed beads have been hand-woven to create this exquisite work of domestic art. The design is the same on both sides. Wonderful muted color scheme. Decorative Pinchbeck floral frame. 1880's. Newly lined in champagne satin edged with romantic vintage trim. Excellent Condition. This is a very large size for bags of this era. 10.25 inches long. 7.25 inches wide. A fantastic antique piece both to wear and display!
