Superb Vintage Ivory Satin Bag with Beading
An extremely graceful floral pattern of pearl beading appears in high relief on the front of this lovely English evening purse ... which may be antique, not just vintage, because its label reads "EMPIRE MADE." (You'll notice some of our other bags acquired in England are tagged "FOREIGN" and, while I'm not sure exactly when these designations were in use, it was a long, long time ago.) For a truly luxurious look, this bag is also detailed with faux-pearls on back, sides, strap and even the bottom. In marvelous condition for its age, it has only slight areas of staining that are hard to notice. Inside, there's a particularly gorgeous little zipper of bright copper color with a dangly pull. Snap closure is stamped "Star Brand." Dimensions are about 8" x 4 1/2" (plus strap).
