Celluloid Buddha & Elephants Frame on Large Silk Beaded Purse

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Celluloid frame with all original body and lining. Colorful celluloid frame with 4 elephants trumpeting a seated buddha. Push down clasp. Celluloid carrying chain.

The frame is in great condition, with the exception that a previous owner put a small amount of glue where the frame opens on one side. Not the frame itself, but the piece that opens near the hinge. I tried to get a photo, but it's a small area. I didn't notice this until today when I was taking photos.

Brown silk body with large floral beaded panels. Design is the same on both sides. Shattered teal lining. Size is 10-3/4" (including chain it's 17-1/2" long) x 8" at widest point.

Please e-mail with any questions or for add'l photos.
