This is an absolutely exquisite and almost pristine Vintage, 1930's era beaded purse/clutch.  I purchased this gem at a roadside antiques shop outside of Franklin, North Carolina some number of years ago.  I was so enthralled with it's delicate but 'royal' look, even though it's a very sturdily well made purse.  I was going to use it for those special occasions like a wedding or such, but alas, it never got used.....which actually, is good for you!!

The white fabric has been hand beaded with clear, silver grey, and gold lined tiny fine micro beads, pattern is the same on both front and back.  If there are any missing beads I sure as heck couldn't find them.  The back does have a very miniscule stain, but it truly isn't noticeable, and it does not go through to the inside of the purse. 

The inside is in mint condition, lined with a cream colored satin.  There are no stains, rips, holes, etc.  It actually looks like its never been used.  It has a cloth label on the mirror pocket (it has a mirror in it as well) that reads "Made in France".

The clasp sports 2 HUGE rhinestones in filigree settings.  The frame is brass I believe and opens and shuts tightly and securely.  The purse measures 8 1/2 inches at the widest and 5 1/2 inches from the top of the frame to the bottom.  It has a 12 inch brass snake chain and that does show some tarnishing, for an overall hanging length of close to 11 inches.  The photo's just don't do this purse justice, it truly is remarkable.   I would truly like to see this purse go to an appreciate owner and/or collector.
