Smothered in glittering cut steel beads, this is a marvelous bag for evenings and special occasions. Lined in silk that is edged with gimp, the interior has a side pocket that is cartridge pleated and has ribbon trim, for your compact and a small lipstick. The handle is a steel chain. The frame is signed New World Brand. It is etched with a delightful pattern. The clasp is steel with an acorn shaped bead and bead holder in silver steel and blue glass, one per each clasp side. The purse is quite heavy, weighing just under one pound unpacked. 6 1/5 inches tall including clasp; 7 1/2 inches wide
The condition on this lovely antique purse is very good on the bag body, good on the frame. All beads in the body are original, intact and secure. The silk lining has some discolor and soiling with a few darker stains. The silk lining has no shattering, no holes, no tears or rips, no odors. The frame has tarnish or dark discolor to parts of it along the very top edge, where it would have seen the most activity opening and closing the purse, and normal handling of it.
