This amazing beaded purse most likely dates from the middle to late 1920's or the Flapper era. As you can see in the photos, there are two blue and green marbled plastic buttons attached to each side of the opening. I'm not sure what type of plastic was used to make these.

The body is made with deep blue glass beads, and it is also adorned with rows of bright and colorful discs or polka-dots. There are curving lines of red beads hidden under the rows of fringe.

1) Unfortunately, the delicate silk lining and ribbon handle are shattered and falling apart. However, these can easily be replaced.
2) The net fabric that the beads are sewn onto is still stable and intact.
3) The beading appears to be complete and intact.
4) The purse measures 7" by 5" not including the fringe. The buttons both have a 2 1/2" diameter and are 1/8" thick.
