This is a very lovely hand beaded black satin clutch evening bag. The black beads on the front are scrolling leaves all around, and the black beading on the back has the leaf pattern from the frame hinges down and around the bottom and the rest is polka dotted with individual black beads. The top of the frame on the front has a beaded braid. All the beads appear to be intact without any loose or missing beads that I could see.
The frame snaps open and shut just fine, but not real tight. The inside
is lined with black satin and has a side slip pocket. The lining is in
mint condition with no rips, holes, tears, or staining, actually looks as
though it's never been used. It has a cloth tag that reads, "Hand Beaded
made in Hong Kong". There is no strap or chain for this purse and no
evidence that there ever was. There is only a very small issue with the
purse in that some of the stitching that attaches the purse to the frame
near the hinges has come undone, but this is an extremely easy fix. Purse
measures approximately 8 inches across at the widest and is 8 1/2 inches
from the top of the frame to the bottom.
