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: Because sizing varies greatly based on year, brand and garment type, we recommend you compare the measurements noted above to an article of clothing you already own that fits you well. All garments are measured lying flat unless otherwise noted. Black Cat Clothiers cannot accept returns due to fit, so please pay careful attention to these measurements and ask questions before purchasing! Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear. Take a look at our store policies for more information.
