Inside of Vintage beaded Czechoslovakian Purse.

Czechoslovakian geometric beaded purses were very popular during the 1930's.  I purchased this little bag many years ago at the Lakewood Antiques Market in Atlanta, Georgia. 

It is beaded with white and silver/grey lined glass seed beads.  Accents include faux oat shaped pearl beads and gunmetal colored glass tube beads.  It has been well loved.  The back side of the purse has 1 missing faux pearl, there is a very tiny brown stain on the bottom portion it is missing a few beads here and there, and has a bare spot on the top right hand corner next to the zipper pull.  On the front side it has one row about 1 1/2long of missing beads under the faux pearls.  The beaded strap handle has about 1 1/8 inch of missing beads.  The grosgrain fabric is kind an ecru color and shows normal used coloring, but there are no holes, rips or tears.  It has a cloth tag that reads 'Made in Czechoslovakia'.  The zipper closure is intact and works great.  Purse measures approximately 7 3/4 inches across at widest point and almost 4 3/4 tall without the handle.  Handle is 8 inches long for a total hanging length of about 7 3/4 inches.  Being sold 'as is'.

The 1999 Schiffer 3rd edition "Handbags" values these purses at $65.
