Shimmering Antique Art Deco 1920s Marcasite Beaded Paisley Flapper Evening Bag

$450

About

Beautifully textured, antique estate paisley fabric purse from the 1920's is richly embellished with thousands of tiny, hand-sewn, semi-precious marcasite stones which enhance and elevate the subtle, rust-tone paisley pattern. Flapper bag features a floral textured, square, hinged silver-tone metal frame with a kiss top closure. Textured, silver-tone metal chain double handles for hand or wrist carry and may be lengthened by adjusting to a single chain for arm or shoulder carry. Lined in contrasting marigold silk, which is in excellent antique condition, with an interior pocket. Bag measures approximately 9” wide x 9.75” high x .5” deep when empty. Because this is an unstructured, fabric bag, if it were to be carried, the items in the bag would make the shape of the bag shorter, deeper and narrower. Chain handle drop is 5.5" doubled or 9" as a single handle. Weighs approximately 1 pound.
