40s Gold Bead Purse France Rhinestones Sequins
40s Gold Bead Purse France with shoulder chain reflects the simplicity and beauty of Art Deco fashion.
Rows of seed beads augment the careful sequin work. A gold clasp with rhinestones accentuates this lovely purse. Satin lines the interior with a soft gold tone fabric. A Made In France tag hand stitched inside confirms its quality. A shoulder chain hangs 30″ to offer an alternative to holding it in your hand. My guess is that the chain is modern as the gold is shinier than the gold work.
The purse measures 6″ X 5″ X 1″.
Very good condition for its age. No bead loss or staining.
ART DECO fashion enchants us even today. The rebellious 20s generation inspired a century of art and fashion that still gets our attention.
Luxury Fabrics like velvet, silk and linen dressed this decadent generation like royalty. Seamstresses showed off their craft with impeccable detail work. Many artisans brought their expertise from Europe at the turn of the century. These skills upped the quality of craftsmanship in US garments.
