Absolutely incredible 1950s hand beaded rainbow handbag inspired by art deco purse designs, but with a decidedly midcentury flair. Similar to 1920s and 30s purses, the bag is formed on a silver tone filigree style frame, with the heavily embellished beaded portions sewn directly into the interior of the frame. The bag is fully lined with ivory satin, and even has two interior pockets for smalls. The closure at the top of the frame is set with aurora borealis rainbow gems, and the bag is easily carried by a generously sized matching beaded strap. Made in Hong Kong label on the inside. And YES, it comfortably fits a smart phone!
Excellent condition overall with some minor cosmetic notes. The silver tone of the frame has some light tarnish, most notably on the sides. which is note very visible. Some light markings to the lining, and one side of the handles has been carefully and strongly reattached. Beading is in excellent condition with no noted bead loss. Presents as mint.
