The lady of the house surely exhibited her high society standing while parading about town with this handbag in tow! Heavily beaded, detailed design, vibrant with colors. It has a possible silk lining, I'm not entirely certain - if not silk then a soft linen of some sort. There is a scallop edge pocket inside as well. The frame shows some wearing on the sides where you will also see just a few loose beads. The only other place where the beading is missing a few is on the bottom of one side, as pictured. If you are going to be using this as a display, or even functionally, the side with the few missing beads can be turned or hidden from view. This is a spectacular bag, a testament to the times of post Victorian luxury - also the times when ladies carried very little, as their husbands didn't really have them carry money! From the tip of the closure to the bottom of the bag, measures 8" (add 7.5" for the chain drop, a total of 15.5"), width is about 6.5" at the widest point of the bottom. A magnificent bag!!
