This is a completely adorable little vintage evening bag or purse, dating to the 1940s or very early 1950s.
It is has a little label inside which reads: HAND MADE / IN BELGIUM
The bag is in pristine condition with no losses to the beadwork, the interior white silk lining is also nice and clean with no dirty marks, couple of little brown spots commensurate with age - but no other issues.
The bag is very fine in the making - and all the embroidery and glass beads are applied to quite a fine material. There are lots of glass beads of different shapes and colours and all the flowers have been embroidered with delicate stitches. The colours remain nice and bright with little fading.
The back and front of the bag are identical - and there is a clasp at the top to open and close the wee bag.
There are two little straps of handles both with the meandering beadwork design which appears at the bottom section of the bag.
Again, this bag would be certainly very pretty for a wedding or formal summer evening event - as it is a nice ivory colour - and is quite petite so it would only hold the bare necessities that you might need on your big day - a little powder compact and lipstick etc.
The main body of the bag measures: 5 inches in height and with a width of 6 1/2 inches at the widest.
