Gorgeous, original beaded drawstring evening bag of silk worked with swirls of glass beads. The top is petal shaped and beaded along the edges and it has a 6 cm fringe at the bottom. Closes with two long silk cords. Lined with silk - 1940s.
20 x 13 x 1 cm (8 x 5 x .5") not including the 6 cm (2.5") fringe
Very good. The silk is in great condition. I have repaired some beading and secured any loose beads. There are a few missing, but nothing noticeable. If you look hard you will see that the thread at the top of the beading below the casing has faded and looks brown. A dangle from the fringe is missing in the centre.
