Antique 1920s Purple & Silver Art Deco Beaded Mesh Bag/Purse with Fringe

Antique 1920s Purple & Silver Art Deco Beaded Mesh Bag/Purse with Fringe

This item was brought to the collection from an estate that included many Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco vintage items. We're dating it to the 1920s, and it's still quite sturdy and ready to use, with a bit of loving care.
The beading is quite heavy and dense (and is likely leaded crystal), and the ribbon is a lovely Art Deco purple and silver abstract pattern.

COLOR: Clear, iridescent beads, silver tone metal seed beads. The ribbon is purple and silver.

MATERIAL: The beads are quite heavy, and appear to be leaded crystal. Steel metallic seed beads, and cotton/metallic ribbon.handle.

CONDITION: Very good to excellent vintage condition. The bag body is in excellent shape, with no issues. The ribbon is rolled and has a tear in it at one point: we suggest removing it, careful pressing, and a bit of repair. Because it's gorgeous!

Height (body of bag): 5 in. (12.7 cm)
Width: 4 1/2 in. (11.4 cm)
Interior (depth): 4 1/2 in. (11.4 cm)
Fringe (length): 1 in. (2.5 cm)
