This beaded drawstring bag has been well loved and well used.  It's still in fairly good shape for a purse it's age but it could use some tender loving care.

It is hand embroidered on a thick canvas with larger beads in colors of translucent dark teal, grass green, amber, raspberry, very, very  pale pink, brown glass beads and black jet beads.  Overall, it has minimal bead loss, perhaps 12-20 in all.  There are a couple of loose ones here and there as well.  I believe it had a fringed bottom at one time, but that is no longer there.  It has what appears to be a glob of glue stuck on the back.

It has a crocheted header with a missing drawstring.  The lining is a soft black cloth fabric and is intact with no holes, rips, tears, or shredding.  Purse measures about 3 3/8 inches wide and 5 inches tall. 

Purse being sold "AS IS" but I think just a few smart stitches with matching beads, add some fringe and new drawstring and this baby would be just like new, if nothing else, it still displays very nicely!!
