Antique Beaded Purse - Egyptian Clasp - Coin Purse - Evening Bag
This amazing little purse is an antique beaded bag. It just is stunning! I can not stop staring at that clasp! It is just so intricate with the open weave of florals and in the middle of each side a pharaoh. The top still works to open and close the clasp and the chain is beautiful and still intact as well. The beading is fine and worn around the top. You can see in the photos there is a whole where it used to connect to the clasp. It wouldn't be for use at this point as it is fragile but the floral beading with the cobalt blue is just gorgeous. I love to imagine where this purse may have gone in its day!
Size Top of chain to the bottom of the bag is about 11.5" - actual beaded area including the clasp is about 6"x4.5" in size.
