A beautiful vintage bag/purse with an ornate beaded floral design on both sides. Dating from around 1920-1930, it has cream, gold and bronze glass seed beads hand sewn to form the design. The frame is gold tone with an ornate flower motif interspaced with half pearls. Not sure if these are real or glass. It opens by slightly pulling each side of the top apart. Internally it is lined in a cream fabric with a small pouch. No makers marks.

Condition - I've carefully checked and I can't see any missing beads. The base fabric externally is a little grubby and could do with a clean - not something I want to do as I've no idea how best to approach it. The lining is very clean and the frame is intact and works fine. The only very slight flaw is that on one side, there are a few loose stitches where the fabric meets the top of the frame - should be easy to rectify with the right know how (see picture 2).

Size - measures approx 8 1/2" across at its widest and is approx 5 1/2" tall including the beaded frame.
