1930s Ornate brasswork beaded tapestry handbag
A particularly lovely and work-intensive 1930s tapestry handbag, with body in a thick black rayon jersey, with brass frame clasp. The front is heavily beaded with glass seed beads, swirling around a central needlework bunch of roses, framed by gold lame braid, and finished with brass stampings along the upper edge.
9.5" across widest part
10.5" high not including handle
Presents very well, a v small red mark to the back, minor wear to the strap where it loops through connectors, and a small amount of bead loss to one area of swirling at the corner- it's so encrusted with beads though this isn't very noticeable!
