Spacious c 1950 Beaded Black Satin English Evening Bag
It can be hard to find an afforable vintage evening bag without interior "issues" -- those all-too-common perfume and makeup stains. This one is perfect inside, and also looks perfect outside until you inspect it very closely. A graceful floral and foliate motif shimmers on both sides in elegant black-on-black and there's a beautifully engraved frame with an ornate chain handle. This purse can hold a lot, too. Measuring about 7" x 6" (plus clasp and 12" handle), it's exceptionally roomy for an evening bag.

Acquired from a dealer in the London area, it was probably made in England. The overall form and sleek twist clasp are typical of bags produced soon after World War II. Someone handy with a needle could replace the few missing beads in an hour or two, and matching ones should be quite easy to find since they're classic rounds of black opaque glass.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping and gift-wrap is always free when desired. BTW, we currently have quite a few historic evening bags, some as old as Victorian, so please run a search to see the rest if you're a purse collector. Thanks for looking!
