Vintage beaded purse with tortoise lucite frame.
Inside of Vintage beaded purse with tortoise lucite frame.

This purse is beaded with larger size glass beads in brown, white, green, light tan, black and grey with a floral motif.  There are some loose threads and some missing beads here and there, a partial missing row in both the center of front and back, and a bald spot next to one of the hinges.  The worst part of this purse is the frame.  It's bakelite made to resemble tortoise shell, but the closing clasp and one of the hinges are broken, it needs to be reframed.  It is lined with black fabric and is in very good condition, only showing normal wear, but no holes rips, or tears.  I believe it would take only minor repairs to restore this little beauty.  It measures approximately 6 1/4 inches wide at the widest and 6 1/2 inches from the top of the frame to the bottom of the purse.
