This vintage beaded reticule flapper purse is just gorgeous! It was stored in a barn loft, packed away in the early 1980s. I just discovered this treasure at the granddaddy of all picker sales!

The body measures a tad over 8 inches long. The bottom tassel including the ball, measures about 2 and 1/2 inches long.

It's just loaded with beautiful cubed beads. The beads also have a carnival glass look to them. Depending on how the light hits them, they can change color. Just simply stunning!

There are some threads amongst the body that are without beads. I'm going to leave that up to the buyer to cut those or not. There are also 2 threads on the tassel that have come undone. One still has some beads left on it and the other doesn't. I have loosely wrapped the threads around the tassel ball to keep the remaining beads on. I have 4 beads that fell off that one thread, which I will enclose with the purse.

The white area on the ball of the tassel pictured, came off! There is no white on the beads now!

There is one split in the beading that I found just by chance really. Just needs a quick stitch to keep it together. The beads aren't in danger of falling off. The stitch is needed to keep the design together, much like putting the arms on a knit sweater.

I haven't tried to clean this and it is dusty on the top. The inside is in fabulous condition.

If you have any questions or need additional photos, please let me know.

All my packages are sent with insurance, and tracking within the U.S.
