Please be aware Black Cat Clothiers is operating out of Philadelphia, PA which is currently impacted by COVID-19. Due to this, I will be shipping less frequently to minimize my exposure at the post office. All orders will be sent instructions for how to safely handle your package when it arrives, as COVID-19 may live on cardboard for up to 24 hours. Current processing time is 2-5 business days. Be safe and thank you for understanding.
Absolutely stunning 1920s beaded flapper bag featuring looped trim, tassel ornament and a gold chain handle. The color on this piece is out of this world -- feels influenced by the Egyptian Revival as it almost looks like a scarab beetle. The beads are blue on a deep scarlet lining, giving it a blue-purple-green iridescence. Fully lined, drawstring style closure.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →length: 8 inches + tassel →width: 4.5 inches →opening: 8 inches around
CONDITION: Very good vintage condition with some missing beads on the looped decoration and tears to the lining. The tears don't really impact wear -- the loops for the chain are secure and it's only visible when the bag is open. The chain was possibly replaced at some point. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels, but certainly professionally made. Wipe clean with a lightly damp cloth as needed.
PLEASE NOTE: Black Cat Clothiers only accepts returns if a mistake was made in describing the garment, for which we ask you to contact us within 3 days of receiving the garment. Please compare the detailed measurements noted above to one of your garments (not your body measurements; clothing should allow room for movement) that fits you well. Please be aware all monitors display colors differently. Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage/antique, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear, as noted in the description. To learn more, please view our store policies.
