Big, beautiful, and so well-made :)

Vintage 1940s / 1950s iridescent blue beaded evening bag with twisted top handle and zipper closure with flat structured base.

Near perfect vintage condition; very little wear from age. No beads appear to be missing anywhere on purse. No holes, rips, tears or loose strands of beading.

Beaded top handle / strap is in great condition with no visible flaws or beads missing. Strap is made of two pieces of soft, bead-covered material that is not stiff or structured (does not stand up).

Truly gorgeous beadwork covering entire outside of bag, including bottom. Bottom is structured and allows bag to stand up on its own.

Metal zipper at top; zipper is in great working condition; opens & closes easily and securely.

Inside is lined with gorgeous dark blue-black satin; one open rectangular pocket on side. Very clean overall with no visible issues.

No brand tag or label.
