40s Beaded Purse France Ed B Robinson exemplifies ART DECO craftsmanship. Filigree clasp.
40s Beaded Purse France is made for Ed B. Robinson. The craftsmanship stands out as one of the best of the era. Sold only in high end stores, these purses dignify with detail and design. The combination of filigree and bead work emanate strength and beauty.
Most relevant is the florentine motif sewn on the outside. Pink and blue flowers and lilac buds pattern the purse. A lattice of clear beads interplay with flowers to create intricacy. Hence, the purse distinguishes as art.
In addition to the bead work, a gold tone handle hangs from the top and measures 4″. While it was meant to be worn slipped on the wrist, it can also be held by the chain. The outside does not show any apparent bead loss. However, the satin interior shows some staining. The matching ivory interior has a major pencil smudge at the bottom.
The purse measures 6″ X 8″. Signed Ed B. Robinson Made in France.
Finally, an overall analysis rates this purse as in VERY GOOD condition.
