What a purse! There are approximatly 11,000 beads just on the beaded fringe! This purse is in great condition and is from the estate of Jesse May Duncan of Duncan and Sons's Saddle Company in Seattle, Washington. The company opened in 1898 on Western Avenue. The company had up to 300 employees at one time and flourished during the great depression. Jesse May was a collector of beautiful things and this one is really incredible.

The design is spiraling sections beaded onto a finely knit bag. There are aproximately 170 beads per square inch on the purse and about 11,000 in the fringe. the bag is 9 inches tall and 6 inches wide. There are no marking on the bag or on the silver metal frame. The frame and chain are in great shape too.

The lining is a metallic silver brocade with metallic silver trim around the mouth of the purse. I do not see any flaws in the bead work or the lining. The lining is darkened with age but does not have soiled spots.

There is a matching coin purse with the spiraling design mimiced on the bottom of the coin purse. The compact like top is finely designed with grapes and leaves around the outer edge and a bird picking a choice morsel out of a bountiful basket of fruit. It is 3 1\/4 inches wide and is marked "patented" on the clasp. No other markings.

Let me know if you have any questions. :D
