I bet that back in the early 1900's, this was quite a beautiful purse.  It's been very well loved in it's lifetime and now it's in need of some tender loving care and restoration!!

It's hand beaded on canvas with larger white beads and faceted peridot green colored glass beads.  The facets on the green beads still give this purse a great sparkle.  However, as you can see from the photo's, it does have quite a few bare spots.  It should be an easy restoration for someone with a stash of these beads.  There are no rips, tears or holes in this purse.

The lining was once a white or cream colored fabric, with a little side slip pocket, but it is now heavily soiled and stained, but on the good side, there are no holes, rips, or tears.  I believe the frame to be silver or silver plated.  It has an acorn kiss closure and snaps open and close tightly and securely. The chain however has been broken off at some point.  A replacement chain should not be a problem.  Purse measures 6 3/8 inches wide and just a hair under 7 1/4 inches long from the top of the frame to the bottom of the purse.

The purse is being sold "as is" in hopes that either someone could restore it to it's former beauty, or perhaps a restorer could salvage the beads for another purse restoration.
