I recently bought a group of vintage beaded purses at auction sight unseen and they turned out to be quite lovely. This is a clutch with one of those hide away snake chain handles that folds neatly inside the purse. It is heavily beaded with seed beeds and sequins all ivory in color. All of the hardware is goldtone and there are rhinestones in the tips of the clasp closure. The hardware does show some tarnishing, but is in good working order so the purse is fully functional. It has a tae on the inside that says hand made in Hong Kong for Ganson of California. There is some staining to the lining, I think it's acetate. If you look at the last photo there is a dark area that looks like a shadow on the left side, it is not a shadow it looks like a light stain that is not visible from the inside of the purse. My best guess from the style and from what I have found on the company Ganson, this bag is from the early 1970s.

I ship promptly via USPS and I used recycled packaging. International customers, please email me for an exact shipping cost. I know that my shop is new, but I have been an etsy buyer for many years under the name tinaboebeena in which I have perfect feedback. If you are an artisan and would like to trade please let me know!
