Vintage Beaded Sequined Handbag, Vivant Sarne Hong Kong, Iridescent, Beaded Evening or Bridal Clutch 1950s 1960s

This beautiful beaded handbag is all aglow with aurora borealis iridescent sequins and glass seed beads. It is literally encrusted with beads and sequins. This bag was made in Hong Kong, Vivant By Sarne with Italian Beads; so says the tag. The white with shiny pink, aqua blue and gold shimmer, makes it a beautiful choice for an evening out, or a bridal clutch bag. This evening purse dates to the late 50s early 60s.

The bag is meant to be used as a clutch or has a small gold toned metal handle, however one side of the handle has come unattached to the frame as you can see on one photo. This handle is designed to fold into the bag when using as a clutch which you will have to do unless you have this repaired. The lining is possibly a heavier silk satin, which is my feeling, but I am not absolutely certain. This is a high quality bag and most bags from this era from Hong Kong do have silk linings. There is a small pocket inside. The lining does have a faint impression and mark caused by the handle and a noticeable rust colored one you can see also in the photo. Look to the opposite right lower edge for the faint marks.

Though the handle needs repair if you wish to use it, I still consider this bag in excellent condition because carried as a clutch it is gorgeous and all the bead work is beautiful and sound and the frame is shiny and untarnished as if it were new.

Approximately 9 inches long by 6 1/2 inches tall (22.86 x 16.51 cm)

I got this in the mail the same day that my daughter-in-law came by. We both went into a swoon, but alas, it's too big for the girls right now. That's okay. Children do grow too fast for us.
