Item details

Vintage from the 1950s

An elegant handbag for a vintage inspired bride on her wedding day. This beautiful purse offers sweet flowers in cream white on white hand beading, with glass seed beads. An elegant "something old" for a vintage inspired bride, perfect for any special occasion needing a bit of unique vintage glamour. Best for off white, silk white or very pale ivory. Not well suited for pure white gowns.

Something about these old white beads, they are opalescent. They are white, but they are glass and when the sun or light reflects across them at certain angles, it looks like opal glass, with tinges of yellow, oranges, blues and greens. It is a very subtle nuance these beads offer in glimpses - once in a while, and this tells you that the quality of the beads is high.

Approximate measure: 5.5 inches high, 8.5-9 inches wide, handle drop length is 5.5 inches on a 12.5 inch snake chain strap. Frame opens about 4 inches.

This purse is in very good condition. It came to me with a few of the pearls missing from the frame and the wire was oxidized and broken, so I removed them, added a few vintage necklace pearls that matched and rewired it to the frame with antiqued bronze wire. The decoration by the clasp had become spread out and looked unsightly, so I added a row of twisted beading (using vintage beads I collect from other purses) and resolved the gap issue. Also, there was an entire row of beads missing, which you can see in image #5, top row, behind the clasp in the front of the bag. I used authentic vintage glass seed beads from a salvage purse. It's a solid repair. There may be a bead or two missing elsewhere on the bag.

The lining is remarkably clean for its age, but there are some stains as shown in image #4, please ZOOM for review.
