This is a masterpiece in tiny glass beads. A very unusual and rare scene on a purse. This is a gorgeous, authentic antique (circa 1920s) fine beaded figural scene of a woman in flowing attire (possibly Grecian) playing a harp. She is on the water's edge, sailboat in the background of a lake. The pictures do not do justice to this purse.Please take a close look at the details created in the many colors, shades, and types of beads which give life and depth to the scene. The scene is the same on both sides. Pictures show close-ups of both. Flowers on the bushes, the expression on her face, the shading of her arms sense the movement. Beautiful colors blues, greens, rosy pinks create a serene scene. The lining is new & pristine. I believe the twisted fringe to be original although I can't be positive since I'm not original owner. Measures 7 1/2" across by 10" length with an additional; 1 3/4 fringe. It's a large drawstring. The purse is in perfect condition.
I have carefully examined it and there are no repairs, flaws, missing beads. The fringe is tightly attached to the body. This is a very difficult one to part with, however, I hope there is someone who will will love it and care for it as much as I have. I will be happy to answer.
