Beaded evening bag, c.1925

I love the cheerful blue plastic frame! The pouch is covered with glass beads in shades of navy, green, orange, lavender, and gray. The inside of the lid has a mirror—see the picture below. The bag is lined with beige silk and has an attached change purse.

The condition is very good. The large bead on the cord handle is cracked. This bead could be removed or replaced. Also, there are several spits in the lining silk and on the change purse. These flaws do not detract from the appearance. The price reflects the flaws.

The frame measures 3 1/4" across. The length of the bag is 3 1/2" plus an additional 5 1/2" for the tassel.
