Description

This vintage white glass beaded clutch purse has a stylized butterfly design on both the front and back in green and pink beads. The little clutch purse measures about 8 1/4" at the widest point and about 5" high. The purse closes with a zipper. Inside there is a white satin lining with one pocket and a tag "HAND BEADED IN BELGIUM."

Condition: The beadwork is actually is quite good condition although at a cursory glance, it may not seem so. The reason for this is the beading method used. I've seen numerous Belgian beaded purses with this type of beading in which several beads are strung on one string, then it's anchored, and more beads are picked up and sewn on. This produces some little gaps in the lines of beadwork. I do see one spot where two beads are missing, which shows in the second photo toward the bottom right. Although the lining is intact, it is stained.

I would recommend this cute little evening bag as a display piece, rather than a clutch to carry, because the pattern shows nicely when the purse is displayed and also because this purse is not as rigid as many vintage beaded evening bags, so it's a little floppy when carried.
